The best way to show action sports is with an FPV drone. This has been obvious since the first videos came out a couple of years ago showing how a fast-moving drone could add a new element to the storytelling of action sports. In this video, we get to see how the very talented Danny MacAskill rides his mountain bike down the infamous Dubh Slabs on the Isle of Skye.
Awesome Danny MacAskill video shot with an FPV drone
In this video, Danny MacAskill shows us the level of control he has over his mountain bike as he rides down the infamous Dubh Slabs on the Isle of Skye. In the description, Danny says:
With many of our overseas filming plans cancelled as a result of recent times myself and the crew decided to look a little closer to home for our latest film.
I am a big fan of rock climbing and have been inspired by the various men and woman who set new routes and test themselves on some amazing faces around the world so I set out to find some challenging Slab Rock routes on my home Island of Skye with an aim to ride them in a continuous line and test what was possible on my bike. The remote Dubh Slabs rising out of Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Black Cuilin ridge provided some of the steepest terrain I have ever ridden as well as an amazing back drop for the film.
The remote location and steep face forced us to think outside the box and meant we had to move away from traditional filming techniques, with us opting to shoot the entire film using GoPros mounted on myself and an FPV (First Person View) racing drone.
Film shot in September 2020 in line with government regulations and rules in place at the time.
The video is about 6,5 minutes long and was produced by Robbie Meade and Danny MacAskill. The skilled drone operator responsible for all the amazing aerial shots is Andy Lawrence.
