Video: Autonomous Drone Captures Great Mountain Biking Footage

The promise of a truly autonomous drone that can independently follow you on your adventures, recording the journey as it goes, has been dangled out there like a carrot on a stick for awhile now. But, as technology has improved, it now appears that we are getting closer to this elusive Holy Grail for aspiring adventure filmmakers. The Hexo+ is set to start shipping in early 2016, and looks like it will indeed deliver. Case in point, this video was shot by pro mountain biker Scot Pilgrim, who got to test out a prototype of the drone. As you’ll see, the results are pretty impressive.
