Chopper With Canon EOS 5D Mark II T2i Automatically Follows Wakeboarder With “FollowMe” Transmitter

by planetMitch3 Comments

The folks over at F-Stoppers found this one yesterday…. would you fly your Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) Canon Rebel T2i/550D (reviews) over water? This RC Helicopter with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II is following this wakeboarder with “FollowMe” transmitter. Now that is cool!

Note: Thanks to the comment below, we double checked on the details and indeed it wasn't a Canon EOS 5D Mark II but a Canon Rebel T2i/550D they were flying. Sorry about the error.

      Dang, I should have checked closer, you’re right – in the details they mention a 550D – I made a mistake and didn’t double check the F-Stopper’s post. Thanks for helping out
