    Shot taken at the FIA World Championships in cross country in Hungary. Drone was hit by the huge wave and like if nothing had happened I could safely land. The margin of error was very small flight takes place in a tunnel of trees (5m high x 5m wide).

    Me too ;) It took me one day to prepare this place. We cut a few branches to even it was possible to fly over the water splash. Since this is rally (cars pass every minute) takeoff drone have to be on the side which was not easy. It was impossible to take off from road.

    That would look really cool slo-mo.

    We considered slomo with the cameraman. We were worried that it might be a little too dark in there. 4K give us some moves in post like a little bit zoom to HD.
