Incredible Pole to Drone Footage with FreeOV!

Imagine this: you’re riding down the mountain with your POV camera at arms length when all of a sudden you let go! BUT, instead of falling to the ground and getting lost in the powder, it flies into the air – and follows you down your run…

Well, that’s pretty much what Mike Basich, Nicholas Wolken and Christoph Thoresen thought up for this amazing bit of FreeOV footage. No, unfortunately it’s not some magical new bit of gear you can go and pick up at a supermarket – but it is an incredible piece of drone trickery and amazing piloting!

It turns out that since he worked and rode in films like Blank Paper with David Benedek, Christoph has gotten pretty damn nifty with flying cameras! And we don’t think something this steady and intricate has been done before (in snowboarding at least…). So props to these guys for something we genuinely don’t see every day, and the amazing footage that came out at the end!
