Very cool. But would it be able to keep up should you ride a fast section. My other problems are cost and flight time,which I reckon will improve as time goes on.

Awesome! Anyone know what these things go for? An arm and a leg for sure, but how many arms and legs?

Nope, I seriously doubt it. And what happens when you outrun the signal from the megafter on your wrist? Does it just go haywire and fokof?

It can't keep up with a motorcycle.   If it loses signal it goes back to starting point,  or if further than some distance away,  lands and sends a GPS coordjnate to your wristband.   Check the website.  All sorts of FAQ there.
