Be sure to watch all the way through or fast forward to the end when he takes it up above the treeline
Ok. I am now a believer. That is impressive.

This video kicks major a**! I'm excited for the future of disc golf coverage.

I'm sorry, but Kelly's and Brad's stuff blows the other one out of the water. No offense. There could be competition in this, and that would be a great thing.

"Base" camp is at the bottom of Mt. Everest. Try to understand the language.


Love the quality of the video, though even with buffering it was very jerky for my viewing.

Oh my god - ignorance at its finest! When did I ever talk about this copter as an example of inferior technology? Never. I've now repeated 3 times for you that I love this technology and I think it's awesome.

My concerns with using it to film an entire tournament are cost and logistics related, and technological limitations have to do with the actual camera in use, not with the copter or the mount.

Go back to prerubing people, or go do some research on cameras before you come at me with this silliness.

Does anyone know how this was filmed? If it was with quadricopter like an AR drone those things only get 15 minutes of battery life. If they had high end cameras strapped on I would expect that battery like to drop. Filming an entire tournament would be absolutely awesome but imagine the number of batteries needed for that. But of course that's if they are using drones. I did not see the filming technology used, but I might have missed something.

take it easy, he know some stuff and you know some stuff. there's no need to get upset over a little helicopter camera discussion.

unless... you are the one that is going to start filming all the tournaments via tiny helicopters everywhere.
