For those not interested in soaring in a thermal, you can follow the instructions in the video to skip the' boring bits' jumping directly to the landing. FWIW, I too would appreciate 60 fps over 1080p.

Bloody beautiful video!! Superb angle. I watched every second of it.
Hey wouldn't it be great to have a little robotic pilot in there that could make random head movements?
