Very Nice! The aerial view is pretty cool. The time of the video was good too. It left me feeling like I'd want to watch a little more.

Did you create this video?

Thx Otis,
I did the video, and I left out a lot of footage to stick to the length of the song. I will be back up there next week for the Fontana City Nationals, to film a couple guys. If anybody is going there and want aerial footage of some of their run, I will do it for a small fee. Just PM if interested.

This is a really good idea.

The length makes sense and good choice on the music too.

Keep it up and I look forward to seeing more of your videos.

The way the course is setup you could not follow the whole distance. Part of the course is out of Line of Site (LOS), so I would lose my live video feed or lose remote control signal. I am using a RC Hexacopter (hate to say, Drone) that has a Gopro 3+ mounted on a gimbal for stabilization. I had live video being transmitted from air to ground and I use a pair of video goggles to see what I am filming as I fly, called FPV (First Person View). The Hexacopter is fairly easy to fly but difficult to follow moving objects.

Honestly...I wish some of the shots were a little closer for some OTB action. lol
Sweet vid though!
I'd like to get closer too, it's very difficult to follow riders since speed and altitude changes very fast. I also have to be aware of the people spectating on the hill, so I don't hit them.
