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.
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.SEE VIDEO BELOW>>>
