Recently figured out you can use a phone holder to hold the beacon.
In this case I have the Ram Phone Mount, but I am sure there are cheaper ones similar style. 2020-10-27 21_20_18-Window.jpg

💪 cool - How do you find the S2+Beacon on your bike? Can you fly/take-off while sitting on the Moto or does it throw a compass-mag-Cal like that other brand? atm (with the other brand) I have to stop my moto, dismount, then walk 12m~15m away do the 360° mag-dance, then hover it there, get back onto my moto and finally ride off...

I am not sure. I haven't tried taking off while sitting on the motorcycle. But it did follow me pretty well. Here's the video

thanks for the link - Wow S2 did a good job of avoiding those powerlines! How is it with bike speeds and height - I see you went nice and far out front but did not try front track further away or riding under tree canopy and out the other side at max height. or maybe in another video?

That was my very first ride and I was stupid. I should not have picked that route. Too many power lines and other obstacles the Skydio isn't great at. Going forward I will definitely watch out and pick my routes more careful. Definitely do not recommend it. But great knowing that it can in fact avoid all of that. There is this video. But next video I will try more in front and side.

cool - subbed to see then next one dood - some really nice light in the fall - looks like 40~50kph? I guess having it out front will make it easy to see and save looking around behind you? really curious how well that goes?
