Camera Drone Follows Rollercoaster to Capture Dizzying Cinematic Footage

FPV Drone pilot and YouTuber Viggo Koch recently teamed up with the folks at the Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg, Sweden to film something pretty epic. Using his substantial drone racing skills, he followed the park's HELIX rollercoaster to capture some dizzying footage that holds its own against any CGI out there.

It's only four days into 2017, and already we have a contender for the most cinematic drone footage of the year. This short clip, shot by FPV drone user Gab707, would be right at home at the beginning of a Lord of the Rings movie. Frankly, it looks more like CGI than drone footage.

Drones (we're talking about the quadcopter kind, not the military kind) are pretty incredible devices... especially when you toss a camera on them. They tend to be a bit expensive though, starting at around $500 for a lower-level one and going all the way up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Because of this, the drone footage we usually see is done in a semi-safe environment, where the risk of losing it is minimal. YouTuber Shaun O'Callaghan, however, is a bit more brave -- if that's the right word here -- than the rest of us.
