Linendoll: Rory McIlroy drone shot 'completely changed' sports production


Katie Linendoll, the "Gidget of Gadgets," joined The DA Show on Wednesday to share some unique tech insights and her top summer gadgets that can be used by athletes. For anybody interested in taking action sports to a different level (and height), Linendoll recommends buying a personal DJI Mini 2 drone, which has ultra-clear video and strong wind resistance at a reasonable price.

"I've been fascinated with drone technology," Linendoll said. "I'm just blown away by drone technology and how it's really leveling up -- especially action sports -- when it comes to surfing, skateboarding, skiing... Just the different kinds of aerial shots you can get... Amazing drone shot, over 7.5 million views to date from Rory McIlroy on an 18th hole practice shot at the Riviera Country Club. So when the ball took flight, from the second it was hit until it landed, a 100-mph drone got this epic shot of him.

"It was just one of those moments like, 'OK, sports production has completely changed.' Big fan of the DJI lineup -- those are ones I've had since the jump... Great for anyone who's just trying to get really cool aerial technology, the stuff you can see in great productions, but you maybe want to bring inside of your home... Don't you think it's really changed the game, in terms of production? I'm always looking for the next big thing, and how to level things up. And this is absolutely one of the ways."
