Ready to see an epic drone flight? Paul Nurkkala, camera drone operator, turned into an Internet sensation after sharing his latest drone flight, an adventure filled with several stunts around a moving train #actionmagic
Nurkkala took drone flying to the next level after directing his custom-assembled drone onto, inside and under a moving freight train. Yes, that was as dangerous as it sounds. At some point, you can see the conductor startled by the sudden appearance of the UAV.
The images captured are mesmerizing and vertigo-inducing, but you’ll still hit the PLAY button again after watching the video:
The operator equipped the drone with a GoPro HERO5 Session action camera, making sure the drone isn’t destabilized from the added weight.
The stunts are incredibly well-done and memorable, although it does infringe the Union Pacific’ rules. No one is allowed to operate a drone in a way that could distract Union Pacific employees, which, let’s face it, happened here.
