This Icelandic Canyon is the Best Freestyle Spot We've Been To

nurkfpv

The title pretty much say it all. We’ll have to agree with nurkfpv that this Icelandic canyon has to be the best freestyle spot many an FPV pilot could find to rip through. The scene is so stunning, we have to imagine it was hard for the AirVuz FPV Pilot focus on what he was doing. The intense, mossy green foliage latches onto the rocks that surround the gushing falls, every color brighter through the lens of this 4K video. What a session; we're jealous we couldn't witness it in person.
