Dang, those quad-copters seem so fun. I'm ashamed to admit I've let me French go by the wayside, so I didn't understand a word in the video. :oops: The skill it takes to fly one of those things through a maze of trees is impressive!

I've seen a lot of videos using quad-copters to capture footage. Here's a really cool one you bike guys might like, A Little Fun with MotoGP guys at Rossi's Ranch.

Well, he is a 9-time World Champion that has marketed the hell out of his VR46 brand. I'd imagine he has one of the most recognizable brands for a motor-sport racer, world-wide. He's got some change to spare. I love that he's spending time with the new true "Alien," Marc Marquez. Its's like he's passing the baton.

If one happened to appear over our Mexico property, it would be a target. :-D
