6-minute Video Of Daredevil Wingsuit Flyers Gave Us The Cringe

Here’s a 6-minute plus video of daredevil wingsuit flyers doing their things. I am sure most people will be familiar with wingsuit. If you don’t, here’s what Wingsuit is about: it is a flying squirrel-like suit that lets its wearer glide through the air when dropped (or jumped) from height instead of plummeting straight down to Earth. A parachute on the wingsuit flyer’s back, activated when nearing the ground, provides the daredevil a cushioned landing.

British Teen Placed First In The Inaugural World Drone Prix In Dubai

I bet when the first person who came up with the idea of quadcopter didn’t imagine it would one day become a sport, much less one that pays. It is not like there aren’t any drone racing going on today; there are, but the pay out to the winning teams are probably not at the scale of World Drone Prix’s and that’s not to mention those less televised races probably don’t have a ‘track’ as flashy as the one built for the inaugural World Drone Prix in Dubai over this past weekend.
