 What happens when you ride through the woods? This thing smashes into a tree?

 I'm thinking the same, they need to make a tree dodging one!

 Actually it sounds like in lap mode you can program a path that would avoid trees... hopefully... and there's a point and tilt mode and they plan to implement obstacle avoidance if they raise enough money

 Not convinced. Only the best footage would have been used for this advert and a fair bit was pretty twitchy. Drones need to glide so smoothly to deliver quality footage- the twitchy nature of this makes it look pretty cheap to be honest. Also, I couldn't relax and just ride knowing there's £1,000 worth of camera gear flying along behind me- I'd be constantly checking it was still there, worrying that the battery was dying or something. This is just a gimmick.

 Just have your buddy fly a cheap one after you.
Way more stable quad copters can be found online/made.

 I want one! How much are they?
  • + 1
 They are about $1195 on kickstarter I think, and are expected to have a final retail price of $1500. The Hexo+ one is cheaper, check out the video for it on my profile

 I need one! but the price is too steep, perhaps in a few years and with competition the price will come down.
