Has anyone chased anyone with an Inspire 1 or Phantom

I am thinking of bringing my Inspire 1 or P4 along with me when I go to film my buddies downhill skating.

The thing is I need to get really close to capture a real sense of speed.

Which one do you think would be better for chasing a skater?

Inspire has dual operator so I can have more complex shots, but the P4 is much lighter and slightly more nimble.

Any ideas?

For anyone wondering the skating will look like this (albeit much slower).

First off, you're nuts if you're skating this fast without more protection. The Inspire is a bit faster and you can throw the X5 on there if you have one but the P4 is much easier to transport and lug around. Really depends how what quality of video you're going for but the Phantom 4 still shoots in 4K!

Don't need super high quality footage. It would be cut with GoPro footage.

P4 can prob keep up fine. Inspire definitely can and the dual operator would be great for keeping the frame in subject. Active Track would also be great for keeping the subject in your shot but you have a little less control.

Maybe active track would be better than dual pilot simply for the fact that I wouldn't need a third person in my car.
