    Default Unmanned aerial photography/videography

    I'm a journalist who writes for Runner's World, posting with permission of the site administrator. We're looking for examples of road races that have used, or are planning to use, unmanned aerial vehicles for photography or videography. We know of one event that has done this, and another this week that is also doing it. Are there any others?

    Ha. Of course there are others! In Oregon a company named Drone Motion has filmed a handful of AA Sports events with drones starting back in 2012. Extremely well done too!

    Here's Pacific Crest in Bend Oregon this June:

    Heart Breaker Half Marathon from earlier this year in Hillsboro Oregon:

    The company has also filmed local cyclecross with drones.

    I've considered it. I almost bought a drone in barnes and noble last month.

    I've also been playing with a Drone Parrot, but haven't been comfortable enough with using it "live" yet

    We used it in an event for a video and we really liked it:
