Crazy Train: A wild drone flight into & under a moving train

Tommy played piano like a kid out in the rain
then he lost his leg in Dallas he was dancin’ with a train
 

Man, I thought that my flying a drone off the back of a boat on the Mississippi was risky—but that seems laughably sane compared to Paul Nurkkala flying his drone flying onto, next to, inside, and under a moving freight train.

Nurkkala specializes in flying camera drones through a first-person point-of-view using a live feed through goggles. His custom-assembled drone was equipped with a GoPro HERO5 Session action camera, which is light enough to keep the craft fast and nimble.

“I recognize that this isn’t the most ‘flowy’ video or anything, but all of the things were all in the same flight, so I wanted to show that off,” Nurkkala writes.

Madness.
