Alistair Roberts was visiting the Basque Country with his FPV plane, an Easystar which he has funded and built as part of his final year project at school. An amazing feat. He flies it with video goggles linked to a GoPro camera on the plane which is servo driven to mimic his head movements.
Doug, runs BasqueMTB and is trying to keep ahead of the plane on his Cove GSpot. There couldn't be a better bike for this job but it's still hard to stay ahead of the plane!
While we were filming the wind picked up, making it very hard to control the plane and we had to abandon the shoot without all the footage we wanted. Hopefully next year we will capture some more footage!
You can read the full story here: basqueMTB.com/news-and-views and you can see more of Alistair's videos on his Vimeo channel (see credits). If anyone wants to hire Alistair for a filming project then I can highly recommend him, just get in touch through his Vimeo page.
The music is Strangeways Inside by the Mull Historical Society's fantastic album Loss.
