 Not a fan of the drone flipping the perspective around... Track the rider from a consistent perspective in a long take. Just because your drone *can* do that doesn't mean it should.

 Really great flying and riding. Why this is called "Raw FPV" I don't know, as it's stabilized, edited and the soundtrack is added in post. None of which I would define as "Raw". Cool video though!

 Super cool. I think one of my favorite camera angles is rider chasing camera. Wether it’s a drone or even a GoPro on another rider’s seat tube pointing back. Looks so rad watching what the rider is doing as terrain approaches.

 I never really understood how they get the sound from these vids... If the rider was mic'd up, you would hear the drone noise... Do they add in the sounds later?

Great vid

 Surely there is a drone-be-gone audio filter by now.

 I think that sound from the video is stripped and then add the audio from a drone-free run. At 0:55 you can hear tire noise return while the rider is still in the air. As much proof you need that the sound is post edited.

 If Covid allows, I'm going to Verbier next summer and this has got me pumped!

 90% = great footage, 10% = motion sickness triggered, haha!

 Well that was quick! Good lord - amazing riding! And the piloting was awesome too. Made me a little dizzy at times, but that's ok. Love the raw bike sounds without the drone. Magic.

 This video is absolutely sick. It's got a combination of smooth riding and camera skills I have rarely ever seen

 I love how great these shots can take you down a trail and you can really see how it feels to ride it.

 That was really really cool! I would like a drone strike counter on the edit though

 Cool video, looks like the drone crashed at 0.52 into the tree with the pad on it.
