Dronerise – freight train captured by UAS

Good morning, today’s UAS video shows a freight train making its way up a mountain. No easy task! For news and headlines, you may have missed, we have the following. A drone video showing a Cessna flying by. A thermal video of the massive fife in Oakland yesterday. The Hubsan Zino drone, a Spark competitor? Cold weather battery test for the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom and a review on drone filters. So, make it a large coffee this time and jump right in!

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s UAS video

Today’s UAS video is from Scott Hiddleston who captured this freight train making its way up and over a mountain pass. Check out the sound on this video. Must have been hard work for the locomotive!

“A drone shot of a BNSF/MRL train climbing from Skyline over Skyline Trestle and on to the Mullan Tunnel. [The] sound is actual audio from the event but clipped and pasted to try and approximate the real thing.”
