This year, the Suzuki Nine Royals hosted one of the world’s most incredible drone racers, BanniUK, to capture the incredible action at the six day event. BanniUK, otherwise known as 15 year-old Luke Bannister from the UK, is one of the world’s best drone racers and winner of the 2016 Drone Grand Prix.
On a massive creative castle feature and under a bright blue sky, Bannister and The Black Sheep Team captured awe-inspiring footage of snowboarders Sebbe de Buck (BEL) and Jamie Anderson (USA), and skiers David Wise (USA) and Giulia Tanno (SUI) going huge on his GoPro Session 5 and his FPV drone.
Watch the action:
This was the first time an event was entirely captured by FPV racing drones. The breathtaking footage showcases the skills of some of the most elite skiers and snowboarders in the world from a perspective rarely seen before. The perfect combination of technology and sport.
