A drone pilot has partnered with a theme park in Sweden to utilize his skills and record one of their rollercoasters. He operated the drone to closely follow the coaster’s car around the tracks for the thrilling footage.
FPV drone pilot and YouTuber Viggo Koch was at the helm of the drone, recording the video at the Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg, Sweden. He teamed up with the park to race the drone around the tracks of the HELIX rollercoaster. The shoot itself was scheduled before the grounds were open to the public — needless to say, for safety reasons — and serves as a great promotional visual for the park.
Koch used a GoPro HERO 7 Black, which was attached to his custom-built racing drone. The drone was fitted with a Foxeer Falkor FPV camera. In order to be able to monitor the footage in real-time, he used a pair of Fatshark HD3 Goggles paired with the ImmersionRC RapidFIRE 5.8 GHz Module and VAS 3-turn Helical Antennas, and he piloted the drone using an FrSky Q X7 Controller with a TBS Crossfire Micro TX long-range R/C link.
