The main idea is to mount a camera and possibly a shotgun mic to a quadcopter in order to catch epic film.
This concept was featured on Gizmodo here and another place here was just so cool. We are especially impressed by its mobility, and have already thought of dozens of shots that would be really cool to take with this.
Here is more footage of the inspiration (named CineStar) operating.
