No idea. I am fascinated by the potential. I wish they had footage of the unit they used and more footage of the guys who flew the thing and what the video feed/controls look like. This is the future for how this stuff is going to be captured, especially for surf related kiting. I could see it being used for training and just general filming.

Learning to fly and shoot video at the same time must take some getting used to. So now I want a FloRider and this set-up, I have to start robbing banks like in Point Break.
