Bust out your barf bag and hang on to your office chair while you watch pro motocross rider Tyler Bereman right straight to Send It City from the perspective of a fast-moving drone flown by ace aerial camera op Johnny FPV.
A friend promoting Red Bull’s house of extreme content just sent this and I clicked quick when I saw Mr. FPV (real name Johnny Schaer) was involved. His roller coastery drone videos are freaking amazing and uniquely swoopy. They look great on a big screen, by the way, so if you have YouTube on your TV I suggest tossing this up there!
Rider Tyler Bereman is obviously talented on the handlebars himself. Here’s a little more context from his résumé via Red Bull:
“Bereman is a leading motocross freerider, known as much for his innovative action videos as he is for the enormous whips and quarter pipe airs he throws in competition. He has won eight X Games medals since 2017, including a gold medal in Moto X Best Whip last summer in Minneapolis. The Southern California native hails from Templeton and typically trains in Murrieta.”
Hey, I bought my Montero from a dude out in Murrieta! Guess I should have stuck around and tried to get some riding lessons. (Just kidding, no way would I go off jumps like this, even before mulching my hand in that stupid UTV crash.)
The bike Bereman’s on in this video is a KTM 450 SX-F, a fuel-injected thumper (single-cylinder) that KTM claims uses “the lightest 450cc motor” on the motocross market, churning out 47kW. The drone setup uses a DJI Osmo Action and DJI FPV transmission system.
You can see some nice high-res stills from this video shoot on Red Bull’s site too if you’d like to dig into it a little more.
