Few technological innovations have had such a resoundingly positive effect on the public’s enjoyment of extreme sports since the advent of the camera drone. The reason for this is simple and straightforward: exciting, awe-inspiring footage, from angles that were impossible just a few years ago.

Drones

Extreme sports have always proven difficult to film in the best of times. Many of these sports rely on the unpredictability of nature for the thrill and sense of adventure, and even those which take place under more controlled conditions still lack the well-bounded courts or fields of more traditional sports. Particularly in aerial extreme sports, there is no easy way to mount a camera somewhere that will capture every minute of the exciting action.

Piloted drones have changed everything. Small enough to fit into places no manned aircraft could, light enough to be carried into wild environments, and acrobatic enough to follow the twists and turns of today’s best athletes, these modern miracles pull spectators into the air to witness the most exciting moments firsthand. From long, sweeping pans over a mountain slope as a skier descends, to an eye in the sky over the fiercest of rapids, the drone allows the camera operator the freedom to maneuver for the best possible shot without ever endangering themselves or the competitors– and keeps them out-of-the-way of the action. Audiences are able to see every movement of the athlete in crisp detail, giving new perspective on the skill and artistry of the sport.

The future of piloted camera drones in extreme sports looks especially bright when considering the newest technologies coming down the pipeline. Automated way-point flying, increased battery life, and ever-improving picture resolution will continue to excite audiences everywhere with bigger and better shots of their favorite extreme sports competitors.
