Peter McKinnon puts new Canon EOS R3 on FPV drone.
Recently, Peter McKinnon went to a track day in Canada to put the new Canon EOS R3 through its paces. Peter was taking photos of the fast-moving sports cars on the track and by the looks of it, the new and high-end Canon camera does not disappoint.
Some of the action around the track is recorded with an FPV drone and at one point Peter decides to put the new Canon EOS R3 on an FPV drone as well.
What could possibly go wrong?
The FPV drone was flown with the DJI FPV System. At some point in the video, while the FPV drone with the Canon EOS R3 is following the BMW M5 a ‘weak signal’ is shown in the video. Of course, we don’t know if a signal loss was in fact the reason for the drone crashing. I mean, the DJI FPV System is known for its ability to provide a very strong signal between the drone and the remote controller. But either way, the drone crashes and crazy enough the camera survives the crash. Somehow, the lens took most of the impact and broke its mount, but the camera itself survived the crash.
Unfortunately, the video does not show us what happened to the FPV drone that was carrying the Canon EOS R3.
There’s more drone footage in the second video below.
