GoPro filming can be pretty rad - but this takes it to a whole new level.

Check out this promo video for FreeOV's "followcopter". One minute, you're filming from the pole. The next, the camera's lifted up into the air, giving you some sick aerial drone footage - Art of Flight style!

Apparently the rider controlling this drone device - Christoph Thoresen - spends a lot of time practicing his piloting skill. But the result is amazing footage of fellow shredders Mike Basich and Nicholas Wolken shredding backcountry pow.

Right now, it's controlled manually but the idea is someday it will follow you around remotely. Is this the future of GoPro filming? We hope so!
