As the level of freeskiing progresses, so does the cinematic experience that brings bangers to our computer screens. Thanks to the improving technologies of POV cameras and the art of flying, we are able to enjoy badass skiing shots on a whole new level. We’re always interested in seeing the new ways that freeskiing fans are able to showcase their talents, which is why we are giving one lucky participant the chance to win an Iris+ Drone from 3D Robotics. Yes, you read that correctly, we are giving away a freaking drone.

Ready to Fly
Inside the IRIS+ box is everything you need to fly. Simply attach the props, charge the battery, and you’re ready to fly manually with the included remote control or autonomously with a Mac, PC, Linux or Android device.
The IRIS+ can land itself automatically, or return to a home point if it travels out of range or runs low on battery.
3DR’s 3PV™ (Third Person View) Follow Me technology turns your IRIS+ into a hands-free aerial camera crew that puts you in the middle of your adventure. The IRIS+ can easily follow and film you while carrying any GPS enabled Android device. This advanced technology simultaneously controls the gimbal to keep the camera centered on you, capturing sweeping cinematic video from a perspective unlike any other.
Auto Mission Planning
With free DroidPlanner 2 software, IRIS+ users can plan flights by simply drawing a flight path on any Android tablet or phone, which allows for hands-free flight control. Now your drone will go where you tell it to go, and it can even keep your GoPro pointed at the same location via a Region of Interest waypoint throughout the entire flight. This enables fun autonomous journeys, and automatically stabilized video capture that would be otherwise impossible.
The IRIS+ personal drone is optimized to capture amazing GoPro aerial images right out of the box. IRIS+ comes with an integrated GoPro camera mount with a vibration dampener for aerial photography and video. If you are looking for the highest quality and most control for your aerial GoPro video, IRIS+ also has a purchase option for a Tarot gimbal. This gimbal provides stabilized, controllable, high-quality video and photo for GoPro users who desire it, and it enables control of camera angle manually or automatically.
