We here at AirVuz — including AirVuz FPV team pilot Phluxy — teamed up with the Harlem Globetrotters to produce a unique video of the famous basketball tricksters performing part of their routine. Using a racing drone, Phluxy filmed a single-shot take of the tricks to showcase the Globetrotters’ skill and personality. Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes look at more footage from the shoot.
 
In other drone news this week, drone manufacturer Skydio is in a bit of hot water after it was discovered that the company’s ad promoting its follow-me technology was shot in Yellowstone National Park. Flying a drone in national parks in the United States is illegal. The Instagram post by Skydio tagged the video’s location as Iceland, but several people noticed that it was indeed filmed at Yellowstone.
