Get ready to be blown away.
Gabriel Kocher is a Montreal physicist who spends his spare time as a drone racing pilot. This past September he packed a lightweight drone up into the Swiss Alps – and the short film that resulted is nothing short of stunning.
Besides the thinner air up there, the challenges of high-altitude drone flying are steep – and if you lose an aircraft, you’ve probably also lost all your hard work. This, thankfully, made it back for all the world to see – but a word of caution: if you get motion sickness easily, you might want to find a nice cat video instead.
