  13. Hi guys, I've been filming with my Arri ALEXA Mini on my drones for almost two years now and love it. I've only ever hired in and used the WCU4 and DJI Follow Focus systems. The DJI is pretty poor and only works up to 100m whilst the WCU4 works fine up to my legal max range of 500m. I'm now ready to invest in my own system and was almost 100% ready to go for the WCU4 when someone told me about the Preston. Do any of you have any experience of using the PRESTON system with a drone and any comments, pro's or con's. :o) Thanks in advance, Stef x
