Just saw the Candide video with the drone automatically following and filming him.. so imagine this now:
how absolutely sick would it be to see a follow shot from a drone filming someone slaying an AK spine or BC pillows. The technology already exists, as we can see.
So what if you get caught in an avalanche while one of these is following you.. seems like a waste of technology to not have it help out. It's totally possible and it wouldn't be very expensive to have the drone then land on top of the snow exactly over where you're buried in the case of an avalanche. It would make finding someone way faster.. could easily be the difference between life and death in places like AK where if someone gets caught in an avalanche they might be 2000ft below you where you can't watch them and get an idea of where they got buried.
Not that there would be much of a market.. but it would be cool all the same.
Or in a resort situation where an avalanche buries more than 1 person out or in bounds, before patrollers even have a chance to get there a drone could have already flown from the top or bottom of the lift and landed over the nearest buried person. Or even the deepest buried. Kind of cool what technology could do.
