#QuadGoals: airblastr

Jonny Durst, known in the drone world as airblastr, is this week’s #QuadGoals featured pilot. Previously seen on “Behind the Goggles,” Jonny takes us behind the scenes on one of his latest epic videos, as well as the quad he used to film it:

“VASTR is the result of an amazing opportunity I had to work with the guys at GoPro to create stunning images of the landscape in British Columbia. We flew around in helicopters for two days exploring remote areas, stopping to take in the sights and sounds. Flying my quadcopter in areas like this was a dream come true.  I kept the flying simple in order to allow the viewer to really take in the views. My favorite moment was flying through the glacier field and the narrow crevasse. It’s moments like that you really have to know and trust your equipment and I had full confidence in my gear.  In the end it was an epic adventure and one I will never forget! Thank you all for the support!” – Jonny “Airblastr” Durst
