Keeping up with WRC cars is a challenge, even for choppers
One of the best (and only) ways to film a rally is by helicopter, even though drones are now budging into this territory; thing is, drones aren’t able to keep up with rally cars for miles at a time while doing triple-digit speeds (at least not yet). Until then, rallies will rely on the insane aerial acrobatics of helicopter pilots, who often strafe the terrain just a few yards off the ground to get good coverage.
Here’s a clip of two helicopters flying at mildly obscene angles at the World Rally Championship LOTOS 71st Rally in Poland.
