This looks so awesome. I hope discgolfplanet.tv starts doing this kind of stuff soon.

Looks like you get multiple mulligans at that course.

the video is all from hole 3 at Flyboy Aviation - the guy throwing is Kelly (owner of Flyboy Aviation)

The remote flying cameras will revolutionize how we watch disc golf from home

Flyboy by far one of the greatest courses I have had the opportunity to play

Yeah, this guy had his crazy contraption filming Kelly when we were there last summer. Looks like a helicopter/spaceship with about 6 or 8 propellers. It was very cool.

Martin/Bubby, did you get to put the goggles on and watch it live as they were flying it? Me and the wife did and it was crazy. When he took it way up, you could see so friggin' far.

I had no idea that Kelly had this thing. He was only there for a short while at the tail end of the monsoon and didn't mention it. Suppose he was worried about trying to fly that thing with thunder storms on all sides.

Looks like it really takes two people operating it to optimize its use unless one person gets super duper good with it; one to fly that damn thing and the other to focus on the disc in flight.

We didn't get the goggles Job, but it sounds really cool. The day we played was the first day Kelly's friend was trying this device, so he was a little tentative with it, but he got pretty good at using it as the day went along, even hovering over water.

Yeah, we were asked not to say too much about it. They have plans to use it at tournaments and didn't want word to get out about it.

I wonder if they could "chase" the disc in flight? Now *that* would be some serious video coverage!

I can't wait to see more of this in the future.
