jaybyrdfilms put together this impressive one-shot scene filmed by an impressively piloted drone. The natural smoothness combined with the tight drone piloting makes it some filmmaking that would be unthinkable just a few years ago.

Maybe the joke's just on us, and this pilot's achieved such a masterful skill level that he's able to put on a believable performance that he's impressively terrible. Or, maybe, just maybe he's pure bad at flying.

The dude who lost his $800 RC airplane has a wonderful memory to cherish for a lifetime. Just imagine how quickly this guy went from being absolutely devastated over his pricey loss, to instead having a couple kind pilots swoop down, save the day, and literally hand him back his expensive RC airplane. It's wholesome moments like this that keep our faith alive for the state of humanity.

There are reports that this story could actually be nothing more than a work of fiction. Real or not, it's still quite the entertaining tale.

A small plane had to make an emergency landing on a Minnesota highway, hitting an SUV in the process. No injuries were reported. Luckily for everyone, the pilot of the small plane was Craig Gifford, an award-winning acrobatics pilot. He said he had to make the emergency landing after experiencing engine failure. All in all, not a bad person for the job.

That was EXTREMELY close to a monumental fail. Can only imagine what kinds of words were being yelled in the pilot's seat at the time.
