Very cool. I've been looking into getting a drone recently. I have one now but it's more of a toy and have been thinking of stepping up and getting one that takes better quality video and more professional features. I've been looking at the ones which have the "follow me" feature where it basically follows wherever you have your smartphone. That way I wouldn't have to rely on having someone else there to do the video recording for me. You basically drive with your smartphone in your rig and the drone follows you everywhere you go.

I've been watching a lot of videos on Youtube by a guy named Ken Heron who is a pro drone video guy and some of the drone footage he takes is fascinating.

Wow! This is really the first time I've seen up-close photos of your rig. That's a pretty amazing machine!

I have to say, it's definitely a pretty sweet looking daily driver.

Yep... it would be easier I think to list what is stock! The windshield? Looks like a great crawler!
