Absurdly Fast Human Catapult Goes From 0 To 200km/h In One Second

Video: Dubai is equal parts engineering marvel and rich person playground. It’s where drones race pricey supercars and skateboarders rent out and drain entire waterparks for their amusement.

Seeing A Drone Zoom Down The Burj Khalifa Feels Like Free Falling

Video: Flying a drone over Dubai? It’s been done. Flying as a jetman all across the most famous buildings of Dubai? That too, has been done.

Here’s something new though: Team Blacksheep flew a FPV Racer drone straight down the skyscrapers of Dubai. It feels like you’re falling down to the ground (as opposed to just seeing majestic aerial views).
