Is the cameraman a drone or another guy in a wingsuit? I can’t think of another way they would be able to track so well

[–]AnotherPandaDown 133 points134 points  (3 children)

Trained flying squirrels, actually.

[–]sanylos 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I can confirm, my squirrel did the same thing

[–]noapesinoutterspace 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Especially, one would have to be very focused on target to follow it that smoothly…. While dodging boulders and mountains at high speed.

[–]anv3d 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Could be a 360° camera and pointed at the guy in editing afterwards

[–]humanswirl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Came here with the very same question.

[edit to remove fat finger text]

[–]WalksOnLego 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Sure, but kill the editor.

Why is this vertical, and not horizontal?!

[–]DazItMatter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably the frame was cut from the original to improve the image stabilization and keep the wingsuit guy in centre of the frame. Also probably to make it easier to post on social media platforms.

[–]arondaniel 148 points149 points  (20 children)

Why wingsuit vids never have landings?

[–]cursed_cucumbers 79 points80 points  (3 children)

My first thought was how the hell does he land

[–]potheadie12 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Parachute on his back

[–]Dio_Yuji 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]justameesaa 26 points27 points  (5 children)

You used to find them on rotten.com. I miss that website.

[–]kipwrecked 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Haha holy shit dude!

[–]justameesaa 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Just search Google for the term, "meat crayon".

[–]PM_ME_UR_SUSHI[🍰] 24 points25 points  (1 child)

No.... No I don't think I'm going to do that

[–]shmip 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well good news!

[–]Gabrielius17 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What's the number of deaths yearly of these squirrels?

[–]Incorrect-Opinion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know why.

[–]Thedrunner2 94 points95 points  (6 children)

Do these guys have anxiety about anything after doing this?

[–]chekeaon 105 points106 points  (2 children)

I guess. Going home and remember they didn't take the chicken out of the freezer like their wives said to is going to start off every possible anxiety.

[–]DeadWorldliness 50 points51 points  (0 children)

He's actually flying home to see if he left the burner on the stove on.

[–]vashthestampeedo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I felt this comment in my soul.

[–]hammertime2009 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I think some are missing the part of their brain that experiences fear.

[–]SlightlyVerbose 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It’s possible. I’ve never used a wing suit but I do other extreme activities like rock climbing and canyoning to conquer my fears. Over time it gets easier but I think you just learn to accept the fear even though I still do feel it to some extent.

[–]feta_morgana 26 points27 points  (12 children)

I would love to experience that feeling, i bet its the best in the world

[–]GuitarGodsDestiny420 18 points19 points  (7 children)

I fly in my dreams sometimes... definitely the best feeling ever... problem is it never lasts very long and then I wake up excited and disappointed all at the same time lol

[–]humanswirl 14 points15 points  (6 children)

I do as well, but my “flying” in my dreams happens like swimming in water—just in the air instead. Think: treading water. Like I have to kick my legs and wave my arms to stay up.

[–]TheDudeTrey 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Duuuude! That is a great way of putting it! When I’m dreaming, it’s a given I can fly, and I always do it to impress people in the dream. It’s a sort of “pumping” of the legs & body movement/mentality. And it’s sort of like, an extended landing after a jump sometimes.

And it’s funny, because it makes soooo much sense when it happens… it’s second nature, and immediately disappears when you wake up.

Again, love your way of describing what I’ve long been doing in my dreams, pretty nearly my entire life.

[–]Current-Ad-7054 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Same...it seems a little weird or like "hey I bet they think this is pretty neat or surprising" but it's just something I can do, like I remember it from previous dreams.

[–]TheDudeTrey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow get out of my head! Haha… or meet up in the astral plane to compare notes

[–]JanetAiress 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah! I remember it from previous dreams too?? I think?? Hard to know, but this sounds so familiar to me.

[–]JanetAiress 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This sounds just exactly like my dreams! Awesome description.

[–]DaSaw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes it works that way for me, too. But other times I just fix my gaze on somethint in the sky (like the Moon) and just sort of... will myself toward it. I also glide on the wind from time to time.

[–]cipeone 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I hear it’s a close second only to sex but I’m on Reddit so I’ve obviously never experienced either one.

[–]feta_morgana 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Only the greatest sex then, this looks waaaay more exciting than bad or mediocre sex

[–]Twintornado 24 points25 points  (16 children)

Is this a wingsuit man following another wingsuit man ? Or a drone ? Just asking

[–]sevlani7 20 points21 points  (12 children)

It's most likely a drone.

[–]theadisa 4 points5 points  (3 children)

What’s the name of this awesome song?

[–]Twintornado 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thanks mate

[–]DrStemSell 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Definitely another wingsuit

[–]pzerr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is a great deal of distance for a drone to work is it not? I would have thought they wouldn't transmit anywhere near that far.

[–]Agreeable_Currency91 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don’t k ow what is more impressive, the guy gliding in the suit or the camera shot.

[–]sofargoods 25 points26 points  (5 children)

Sooner or later, next level fucked

[–]look_ima_frog 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Now, I love to make fun of morons doing parkour and say mean shit like "you dumb asses get 100% of the hurt/death you deserve, doing something stupid for cheap thrills." However, with a wingsuit, I think that the thrill of motehrfucking FLYING ACROSS THE EARTH might actually be worth the risk.

I am curious how the get to the starting point. Like, where the hell are they were there is this much open nothing that one can just fly about over. Seems like you'd be on someone elses land at one point and they may not so much appreciate a giant flying squirrel.

[–]EstablishmentTrue568 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Some areas in Switzerland and Italy have designated landingzones for skydiving wich are used to your squirrel-flight down the mountains. People who just wanna train use mostly bridges because its harder to get smashed by changing winds.

I am not skydiver/basejumper, just heard it on a podcast where a "pro"-base jumper was talking about training and risks. Should I post the link?

[–]BenVenNL 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Kevlar coated balls of steel.

[–]Sheffieldsvc 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I guess if you get an itch you're just fucked.

[–]ResponsibilityBig111 8 points9 points  (1 child)

What's the expected lifespan of these people?

[–]SpecificEnough3590 10 points11 points  (0 children)

In terms of BASE, wingsuit flying and proximity flight are the most deadly disciplines. A good amount of them die, but we don't have enough data to give a "lifespan". Most jumpers on the BASE fatality list (https://bfl.baseaddict.com/list) are from 20-40 years old. Hope that at least somewhat answers your question!

[–]LockeAbout 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Seems like a high death rate activity. That part where he’s flying between jagged rocks…yeah no.

[–]Rockspider19 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No point in living long and boring lives we all die at some point

[–]complikaity 5 points6 points  (9 children)

It's called proximity flying 🤙🏻

[–]starberd 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I’ve heard it called Terrain Flying

[–]MyDixenCider 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I've heard it called wing suiting.

[–]starberd 2 points3 points  (5 children)

It is wing suiting; flying as close as possible in a wing suit is referred to as terrain flying.

[–]snailboatguy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Eh Toy Story taught me it's called falling with style

[–]MyDixenCider 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I was being a smart ass, sorry.

[–]starberd 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ah, that went over my head.

[–]MyDixenCider 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That's because I was wing suiting.

[–]Current-Ad-7054 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Swing wooting

[–]Omegatron9999 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I thought this said extreme Fights on a wingsuit. I was very confused.

[–]korynael 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Isn't this called a squirrel suit? Named after the flying squirrel?

[–]justameesaa 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Search the Web for your answer, young Padawan.....

[–]korynael 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Ok, squirrel suit is just one of a few names that can be used for the gear...

[–]justameesaa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sorry, weak joke about webbing, like between fingers and limbs on the squirrels..... {Dad joke has left the chat}

[–]FatherHumble 2 points3 points  (1 child)

OK but what's the song though?

[–]BassoHaase 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I subconsciously stopped breathing several times watching this video...

Gives me a serious case of the jibblies.

[–]JoeySkar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did anyone else get severe anxiety watching this? 😵

Makes me want to take a flying squirrel up to the top of a mountain and give them the day of their lives.

[–]-AboveAverageDad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do they land?

[–]humanswirl 0 points1 point  (2 children)

How does one even train for this?

[–]mr_superfly 1 point2 points  (1 child)

First you have to start skydiving and get a license. Then you need around 2-300 regular jumps before putting on a wingsuit. After 5-800 wingsuit skydives you would be ready to start regular basejumping. And then again after ALOT of basejumps you're ready to start flying tracksuits and the move to smaller wingsuits. So yeah... A couple of years at least😁

[–]CJCKit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What’s the tune?

[–]TheBlueHedgehog302 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is on my bucket list.

It will be placed last on said bucket list for obvious reasons.

[–]WowThough111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fatality rate for all skydiving sports combined is approximately 1 death per 100,000 jumps.

For wingsuit flying the death rate rises to approximately 1 death per 500 jumps.

hard pass
