Why send a man into the skies when you can send a robot?
The military got that message decades ago when they first started developing drones. Now the world of action sports is catching on.
Witness the work of the Copter Kids, a pair of young engineer-filmmakers who remote pilot RC helicopter-cameras high (and sometimes low) above some of the globe’s most adrenaline-injected spectacles.
The Copter Kids aren’t just cheaper than a full-size helicopter & camera crew, their minichoppers are cleaner and quieter than the competition (the RC helicopters are powered by battery, not gas). And the little machines can catch angles a full-sized chopper could never capture. Who said going bigger is always better?
