How extreme sports inspired a foldable drone

A shared passion for extreme sports led two Latvian entrepreneurs to create a foldable drone that could follow the action.

Before they started, their friends kept telling them that there was "no drone on the market which flies itself and can film us doing stunts".

Now, they've turned their product into a million dollar start-up.
