 Amazing. Wondering why we still getting in 2022 that front Heli ant shots coverage in Ramage when seems much less challenging than these into the open desert.

 because you get dizzy watching more than 10 seconds of this footage, because you can't do live coverage with them, batteries have about 5 minutes of flying per charge etc.

 @waldo-jpg But you could buy hundreds of these drones for what a helicopter costs. Why can't you do live coverage (or at least a small delay)?

 @waldo-jpg: Live streamings have been already done. From gopros to bigger rigs...

 @waldo-jpg: The Natural Selection Tour did a great job with their FPV drones, with pretty much the entire event covered live by FPV drone. The technology is there.

 @waldo-jpg: there was a huge drone last rampage, but they didn't use it for the finals though. The only pictures shown where during trail building and first hits I guess...

 @waldo-jpg: maybe for now, but in a few years they will be amazing. This makes me excited for the future. I can foresee in a few years having follow cam drones for even normal rides, if wanted

 Drones are the future of race coverage

 Wow - this is next level entertainment by all involved. And i mean all. From rider, to drone pilot, the organisation required to pull this all together. So much skill and commitment to deliver what on the face of it looks like simple footage. Superb effort. We're lucky to be in such times
