Ek het die thumb Sticks afgehaal en die remote/foon setup net so bo in die tank bag in gesit, hy verloor jou as jy by 60-80kmh se kant kom maar overall baie impressed gewees.

Jip very impressive. Now we can put a gun on it and build assassin drones. Once your social credit score goes too low we get get an assassin drone to finish the job. :biggrin:

what happened at the end?
did the drone 'over-shoot' and 'recover'?

Very nice E2T. Amazing how technology is coming along. Interestingly I've just submitted my PhD on auto drones for examination, the last part of the title is '...A Case Study of South African Enduro Motorcycle Racers' and in it I make some predictions of what the future might hold. They are going to revolutionize coverage of certain sports.

Quite impressive the vid but doing your PhD on the subject of drone  - now that is quite impressive! Would like to read it maar ek dink my kop gaan te plat wees om die groot woorde te verstaan!!  ???
Enviable - both of them!

It just parks itself once it loses you, here is another version where it actually does very well to see me turning underneath it then finds me again before losing sight and hovering

Incredible, and bare in mind this feature I'm using is a good 4 years old already which is archaic in tech terms. The new rage is all about FPV drones as consumers have become well accustomed to seeing normal drone footage now
