    Must need a narrow lens. Otherwise those front rotors will be constantly in the shot (only going by the photo above). I have not read anything else, yet.

    Off topic...I just glanced through your "Adventures of Raven" Blog. I ridden some of those similar routes on my HD Ultra Limited, which is 1 reason why I'm looking forward to the portability fo the Mavic. P4 is way too large to pack.

    Looks like a Karcher pressure washer with a camera and a bunch of props stuck on it.

    The landing gear looks a bit more robust on this version!

    Quite possibly the ugliest thing I've ever seen!
