Casey Neistat Snowboarding Behind a Massive Human-Flying Drone


Internet celebrity Casy Neistat can tell you just about anything there is to know about drones. Now he can tell you one more thing than just about anyone else – how it feels to be flown by a drone. A giant custom-made hexadecacopter that took about a year to build and weighing in at 165 pounds, was the lifting power behind this epic video, which includes snowboarding uphill and being lifted over the top of chalets at a ski resort in Finland.

The entire video was the work of a lot of team effort and tons of logistical challenges to overcome, so be sure to also check out both behind the scenes videos below:
