    Hey guys, has anyone tried attaching the RC to handlebars of bicycle?
    I'm trying to use Active Track mode but when the drone loses me, I have to stop and make sure he's ok.
    If I had the RC mounted on the handlebars I think I could just operate him back into position as I cycle?

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    I did that. I use it for GoPro on my handlebars. But attaching the RC unit to that is proving rather difficult.
    The closest thing to a solution I've found so far is reverse mounting a Joby Gorilla Pod onto the handlebars and gripping the RC.
    Kinda jenky though :$

    You'd have to mod a mount onto the bottom of your controller too, of course.

    Ah! Yes, that's what I was thinking also.
    But how to do...(?)
