Tip Tuesday: Preparing for BASE
Beau Riebe on getting ready for BASE by working on piloting skills...
Shupeng Zhang is the China's first Wingsuit Basejumper. In a world first he hit a moving target, suspended on a pole of a flatbed truck driving up the mountain roads in Tianmen Mountains, Zhangjiajie, China. (The first person to attempt this feat) Dutch ws pilot Jarno Cordia was stoked to film this stunt, as he taught Shupeng to fly, from March 2013.
“I got the opportunity to test the new www.insta360.com 'One” on a WS Base jumping trip in Tianmen Mountains, China. The camera shoots a full 360 degree panorama, allowing me afterward to find the best angle, and publish the video in the view and angles I like. In this case I picked a backview, resulting in a unique drone-like view of a wingsuit basejumping.“
Experience Wingsuit Basejumping in amazing 360 Degree Video!
Here is a cool video from one of the jumps I got to make from the exit next to the famous Tianmen Mountain Cave in China. Flying over the incredible scenery and enjoying the lush vegetation, blue skies and warm weather, shaping up to one of the most memorable out of all wingsuit basejumps I've made so far.
The video was shot using the Insta360 “One”, an amazing new camera featuring 6 axis stabilization, full 360 video and all that at the price of a normal action camera.
