Blasting A GoPro Out Of A Cannon At 137 KMH Is Easier Than Piloting A Drone

After successfully launching a GoPro through the air using a bow and arrow, YouTube's Sam and Niko have taken that experiment to new heights, and new speeds, by instead blasting the tiny action camera out of a compressed air cannon.

The filmmakers managed to send the GoPro soaring to heights of 73m, and distances of 134m at speeds of up to 137 KMH before the action camera reached the limits of extreme capabilities. Although it died after a rough landing, it captured some spectacular aerial footage without the need for an expensive and finicky drone.
