Bikepacking Overnight on the Katy Trail

A few weeks ago we did an overnight trip on the Katy Trail, which we are fortunate is close for us. This was before the virus stuff started so we took advantage of the nice weather Just a little video of anyone is filling time like I am, haha

Enjoyed your Katy Trail video especially the drone shoots. I'd like to get a follow me drone too. Any suggestions for a low budget newbie? My area is limestone hillsides along the WI MN IA Mississippi river.

Biggest problem you mentioned is the "low budget" haha. Most affordable from DJI that has Active track I believe is probably the Mavic Air right now, which is what I have, however, the active track on it doesn't work that well honestly. Skydio 2 with the Skydio Beacon does a great job of following, but the definition of "low budget" is different for everyone. Don't know if that is helpful at all

Thank you, my goodness, I was hoping more like this $70 JXD 528 with video for starters https://www.tomtop.com/p-rm10222.html Can you comment about the sub $100 models from Amazon that interest me?
