    ok yea cool video, and there's definitely "real" footage mixed in there but a lot of times the movement of the Phantoms just doesn't look real.

    There was a lot of wide open space, I can see where they might keep control signal like it bouncing off the roof and stuff but they wouldn't have GPS because they're under the roof, so they'd be in ATTI mode and most of those cornering movements do NOT look like how my Phantom responds in ATTI.
    that or they're just all super mega expert pilots combined with sped up footage, which could totally be the case.
    also editing ;)

    In some of the shots, they would have to be where they could see the drones.
    So it is most likely the scenes were not done as in one "race", rather, a multitude of sessions with the result shown as an edited video.
    The super high radio frequencies could not possibly penetrate the steel and thick cement walls.

    And that hand catch landing at the end is so believeable :roll:
