Found an excellent video from the guys at Hexo+, featuring one of their developers, Charles Colas, riding the PDS 2015:

Couple of issues they still need to get sorted out I think – obstacle avoidance and a 12 minute flying time. There are more than a few downhills in Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Get that would drain that flying limit fairly quickly and I’m sure no-one wants to be carrying multiple Hexo+ batteries. On the obstacle avoidance thing – personally I would very much accept the thing just not flying into a tree and going into hover mode!

Still, this is just awesome and I have to say I’m very surprised we did not see more drones in the Alps this year – maybe next time.

Congratulations on doing the PDS Charles – it looked like an awesome year for it.
