Video: Damn. I feel like I’m watching the Paramount Pictures title sequence (you know, the one with the stars and the snowy mountain) come to life. Or the opening sequence to a huge blockbuster movie right before it kicks off its first action scene. But I’m just watching a drone fly up the east ridge of Hübschhorn, a mountain in the Lepontine Alps in Switzerland. And it’s as gorgeous as any drone footage I’ve ever seen.
The Reelsteady stabilisation is what really makes the video look unbelievable, but if you’re interested in all the gear that was used to film this ride up the mountain, it’s all here. Of course, you’d probably need some drone flying skills, too, because otherwise you’d probably end up crashing it on the side of the mountain.
