Default Drones?

If anyone attending TDIFest this weekend has a drone that can take pictures, would you mind bringing it along? It would be nice to get a few aerial/overview shots.
Thanks,

I wish. I've been looking into buying one for over a year now, and just never have the funds. I hope someone else has one to bring.

I keep eyeballing them. Would go with my gopro toys. Hopefully somebody shows up with one. Especially since i'm missing out.

Be nice to get shots from mt washington, main area, and at the top during the banquet.

What's the max flying speed of a drone?
How does that compare to the average wind speed on top of the mountain?

Ooops!

Depends on the drone usually. I know some can easily do 45mph. I know wind speed up there can be above that, but 45mpg is pretty quick for something that large to be flying around your head.
