Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today’s video is from the hands of Max Seigal. He used a DJI Phantom 2 with GoPro Hero 4 to shoot these windsurfers in 4K. In the description he says:

“Windsurfing in Naxos, Greece. This was an incredibly challenging shoot with a drone because I was flying in 35+ MPH wind conditions, the most wind my Phantom 2 has ever faced! I was half prepared to lose the drone in the drink… but luckily everything worked out! Amazing stuff — many thanks to the fantastic windsurfers in Naxos.”

Awesome video! Enjoy!
