Very impressive. I suppose now everybody will be racing out to buy one. Useful tool though. Anybody know what brand it is?

Many thanks Robert for that. The symbol is also on the mans sport shirt but cannot track it down. I particularly like this drone as it carries a GO Pro and the propellors are protected with a shield, getting close to people can be tricky but the last thing you want to do is to give somebody a haircut! There are hundreds of drone types out there but the nearest I could find was the IFlight Bumblebee, there are variations of this model with similar performance and made of carbon fibre. A bowling Alley has no turbulence so is ideal to test a drone but another venue may not be the case.
Price of similar 4K models range from $75.00 - $2,000 all depends on the quality of the system and the rechargeable battery. IFlight make a useable one for $800.00.
But if you want to collect your pizza with a drone, then it’s going to be $5-10K Ouch!

First-person view (FPV) drones are generally smaller and lighter than other camera drones and the pilots control them wearing virtual reality-style goggles

I have a feeling that ‘Rally Studios’ Built their drone to their specifications as you can buy the bits to suit your design. Carrying a Go Pro is not an easy task as you have weight distribution issues and battery life longevity. The IFlight Protek 35 is the nearest I can come to that matches the photos except that they have round propellor protecters. The performance would probably be the same. I am looking to buy or build an 8 engined drone that can carry a large load but I also need a very small stable one that can fly into small spaces such as the one in the bowling video.
This drone industry is moving so fast so it may pay to wait a little longer to see how it developes.

the system used for the live video and control feed is from DJI, the drone will almost certainly have been custom built from off the shelf components. Larger custom drones capable of lofting smaller cinema cameras also exist though their physical size and inertia prohibit this type of shot.

The industry is very much a hobbiest space at the moment, but there are some very talented pilots out there and it's another interesting tool to have in the filmmakers kit.
