    Let’s see, what should we pack our promo video with? Lots of swoopy onboard video?

    Nah. Lets have tons of shots of the gizmo itself and a few short clips of fairly static video.

    Very nice rig! I would like to see a cage around the props though, to avoid injury. Makes the craft less vulnerable to foreign object damage too.

    Can’t find the maximum airtime, but I can see a lot of useful jobs for this one!

    More like “jouncy-cam”. That might be useful for another “Bourne” movie, but it’s hardly steady.

    I’ll bet this costs an arm and a leg. The site sells it as “cheaper than having to rent a plane for every shoot”.

    Which part of this movie was steady?
    Was this a commercial?

    Hmmm…small battery pod and six motors going all the time. I wonder what the flight duration is?

    Why do you always have grinding guitar soundtracks with R/C helicopter promos? They never sound like that in real life!
