Twin cities’ drone pilot Jay Christensen previously wowed us with an awesome flight through a bowling alley. Now he’s taken his aerial acrobatics inside of the Mall of America, zooming past storefronts and through its indoor amusement park to chase a group of rollerbladers celebrating the return of the Mighty Ducks to the ice.
Photographer Brandon Rieck of Wanderlust Imagery captured this glorious FPV footage by flying his drone along the top of an ore dock in Marquette, Michigan, then diving down to follow a hockey player skating on the ice below. The transition from above to below is buttery smooth. (Thanks Craig!)
When you’ve turned your enthusiasm for hockey into a career, you need to practice all the time. In this short clip, stick-handling expert Pavel Barber shows off how he trains using an extra-wide treadmill at The Skating Lab while his buddy off camera feeds him practice cones, pucks, and a few unexpected items to dodge.
