This is not in anyway the equivalent of a professional commercially available cable-cam product, but I applaud their success and think it’s great that they re-imagined an RC toy into a production tool. With some improvements to battery type, payload, camera control and camera signal transmission (for monitoring or live applications) imagine the possibilities!
