Copter autonomously following car -- 13-year old has best project of the year!

Jonathan Buckley and his 13-year-old son Kaden (and friend Jack) just had the most epic day using the new and improved ArduCopter Follow-Me mode to have a 3DR Y6 follow a car (carrying an Android tablet). Have you ever seen a better father-son project??

Imagine a car following a copter with:

- on the fly (ortho-)image processing, DEM generation etc.

- some cost-path- analysis 

- good obstacle avoidance

- ...

Maybe the red ballon will pave the way.

Kind regards,

Very nice work - and what a great family project!

It seemed to be working, for the 15 seconds shown.  Still not cinematic quality.
