Filming action sports has become widely popular among amateurs and professionals alike.  With the advent of the small action cam came much more opportunity for people to start filming action sports in ways that were not possible with traditional cameras.  Many camera companies have noticed this trend and have produced products to be competitive in this category.  These action cameras were an inspiration to us as we came up with this project, and would become the foundation for our project.  Many people in the past have attached cameras to bikes, snow boards and many other sports equipment.  This sparked the question, “What if the camera could simply follow you and film for you?” From this question the idea for the action cam quadcopter was born.
