Copter footage was all the rage when I first started CYDI. I was real psyched on the perspective it gave and the potential I thought it had. Then something happened, and by something I mean nothing. It was the same shots every video. Take off, show the trails, follow the riders from a VERY safe distance, and that was it. My dreams of footage akin to the Star Wars Speeder Bike chase scene still has yet to materialize. I get it, no one wants to take chances and risk having thousands of dollars of equipment become Issac Newton’s bitch. There has to be some exceptional pilots out there who could do some amazing stuff with these things. I’m just sure you won’t find them out shooting BMX stuff.
