I love this video clip, hands down the best I have seen to date from a multirotor. Can you guess I am a little bored of endless reveals and pans ;-) No bits of an airframe in shot, no GoPro distortion and filming exactly what they want it to. Brilliant! Watch in HD !

The images tell the story and yes we are told its from a hexacopter but that does not really matter a story is conveyed.

When I first saw this I wondered how they got permission to fly a hexa in the US... then I realized that was the wrong thing to wonder!

Are you sure that's not North Korea?

The subject tracking was spot on both in ascent and descent.

I don't think a CGI artist could do better.

Amazing! And what a superb example of applying an unmanned aerial vehicle!

I was amazed to just see a hexa filming a rocket going up and then…what??? It lands???!!! I thought for a minute that the copter was ascending. Nice stabilization with the 4 corner thrusters. Like a quad but with a bit more bang :)

They should invest in a brushless gimbal.
