This iReport is part of an assignment:
Remote aerial photography
Loveland Pass FPV (no audio)
But, there were some obstacles too. Air currents coming off the mountains pushed the plane throughout the flight, making the video bouncy in parts, he said.

The video was shot with my 5-foot long, 6 lb, video-piloted remote control flying wing. It is controlled from the ground via a live video feed, overlayed with GPS navigational data from an on-screen display. It has an approximately 10 mile range, and can fly up to several thousand feet above the ground. My favorite thing to do with it is take it up in the mountains and fly along high alpine ridges and skim down mountain sides.
