Filmmakers hack drone to carry 1,000 fps 4K camera

There are 4K cameras and drones, and then there’s the Phantom Flex4K and the Aerigon drone –products that top the bad-assery charts in both categories. Drone cinematography outfit Brain Farm decided to pair them up, resulting in a video exactly as impressive as you’d expect. The company (which has done work for clients like Nike and Mercedes) said it’s been dreaming of getting the Flex4K into the air ever since it arrived. The problem is that it weighs in at a bulky 14 pounds without a lens, putting it outside the lifting capacity of most UAVs.
