Drone helicopter grabs race training footage

CloudGate Aerial Cinematography, a company based out of Greeley, Colo., spent last Friday (Nov. 15) testing out a state-of-the-art quadrotor drone helicopter while numerous national and junior teams trained at Loveland Ski Area in Georgetown, Colo. The resulting footage is alpine race training from a unique perspective, one most have likely never seen before.

According to CloudGate, the trickiest part wasn’t even controlling the drone helicopter over a busy ski area. “[It] was a challenge to keep up with those GS’ers!” Have a look for yourself.
