New Step Media takes us on a first-person drone flight through the Akademie St.Gallen, a college campus in Switzerland. It must have taken some serious planning and coordination to pull off the continuous three-minute POV shot that zooms in and out of buildings and classrooms. Watch in 4K if you can.
A duo of Porsches takes to one of world’s best roads – Gotthard Pass in Switzerland, and DJI was on hand to capture the action with their Mavic 2 Pro drone, FPV system, and Osmo Action camera.
