The Pilot of This Camera Drone Has Mad Skills

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Watching this footage of talented RC pilots making their planes perform amazing stunts is made all the more impressive when you stop to think about the skills needed to capture these impossible mid-air closeups.

Not pictured is the custom RC drone, built on an ImpulseRC Seconds Alien airframe, that’s carrying a GoPro Hero 4 to capture all of the action in this video. How the second pilot manages to get so close to the stunt plane, without accidentally clipping its tail or wings, is truly a testament to their flying skills. [YouTube via Boing Boing]
