Detecting and filming the passage of a bike

By seb, in DIY, september 14,2018.

When you jump with a mountain bike and you want to improve, it's convenient to film yourself so as notice your own errors. If there are several people, it's easy to give your smart phone to a friend and ask him to film you. But when you are alone, you must trigger the camera, climb back on your bike, jump, and then stop the camera. It's tedious, and you then have long minutes on video that you need to cut.

We have recently found remote-controlled micro-quadcopters, so light that you can use them inside without risk, even in an office environment. Some models are even equipped with a camera, allowing you to fly in FPV (First Person View). If you like learning new things, it's ideal to lighten the rainy days that we have been having early this year.
