Surfing The Water With Alta 8 Drone
« on: September 19, 2016, 11:14:25 AM »

Freefly released its Alta 8 drone along with its promo video (seen below). The drone was built to carry heavy loads and as you would see from the video below, its also capable of pulling a grown bottom man on a surfboard, pretty fast, and taking video same time.

This nearly 4 1/2-foot multi-rotor flyer sports eight engines each whizzing along at up to 6,300 RPM. Now the scary part,  ??? the Drone is said to cost around $17,500/18,000. Well since it does its job in carrying heavy stuffs around, maybe you might also think of other ways to use it aside from surfing.  :P

The more propellers and motors you add to a drone, the more weight it can lift. Freefly Systemsí Alta 8, designed to carry heavy video equipment, has eight rotors making it strong enough to tow a surfer on a wakeboard. Say hello to the new sport of dronesurfing where waves arenít necessary.
