This Stabilized Footage of a Drone Flying Up a Mountain Is Pure Gorgeousness

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, like, 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 stabilization 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.

Seriously Casey, you post a cool video and don’t give any info on it. Report on it. Contact the guy that made it. Ask him how he did it. This isn’t any better then a Reddit thread.

EDIT: I couldn’t remember who’s post it was until I looked it up, but I said the exact same thing on one of your posts in November. http://sploid.gizmodo.com/so-for-the-first-time-ever-on-gizmodo-i-m-going-to-com-1789540808

This is what the drone operator used though:
