Thinking about getting a drone to take some wakeboard vids with the go-pro- any thoughts or experience out there to share? Looking for recommendations

Thanks

I have been wanting a drone also. I have looked at the upper level DJI stuff that you build. I have seen a few on craigslist fully loaded for 2-4K. I don't know enough about them to make a good decision. Smile

here's a couple of videos that one of the guys I kiteboard made last summer.

They're very cool. I don't know the brand name of the drone, there's a couple of pics of it though. Seems to do a pretty decent job though...

they aren't the best at surfing.... They do have some mad kiteboard skills though. A bit of the issue using the drone for kiting is at anything over 15 knots it gets a little iffy on flying the drone.
