An ASH 31 Mi starts off by scraping the rocks low in the valleys, then climbs up above the highest peaks in the Southern French Alps. Fantastic video!

I liked the flying, but I was as much intrigued by the 360 degree video camera that allowed the
video editor to pick the angles desired.

I would like to know what camera setup was used. The 360ยบ cameras I have seen produce "fisheye" kinds of images. Perhaps this setup was a remote controlled pan/tilt head?
