Stunning Aerial Footage from Pakistan

Drones in Pakistan are a contentious issue right now, but here's something very different.

This amazing footage is from a glorified remote control helicopter (type thing), used to spectacular effect on a trip to the Trango Tower, as part of the Mammut Peak Project.

There were three members in the rope team on the imposing face of Trango Tower, but a fourth pair of eyes was following and watched their every move. Remo Masina from the Swiss company, Dedicam, controlled a backpack-sized drone, supported by four propellers, from the base of the face. Events on the rock were documented up close using a mounted camera. This resulted in breathtaking moving pictures and action camera flights which had never been produced before in this area and at these heights.
