Le Mont Cervin, ou Matterhorn, culmine à 4478 mètres sur la frontière entre la Suisse et l’Italie. Très caractéristique avec sa forme de dent, ce sommet est magnifique mais entre son isolement et sa difficulté d’accès, quoi de mieux qu’une balade en drone pour l’admirer sous sa robe blanche ?
Matériel utilisé et conditions d’accès pour cette vidéo drone :
FPV drone flight up the Matterhorn’s epic Hornli ridge. I’ve wanted to try this flight for a while and finally went for it during my month in Switzerland this winter (2022). I flew an Iflight Chimera 7 with DJI air unit and crossfire. The video was shot on a GoPro Hero 10 in 5K 30 and stabilized in Realsteadygo.
I only brought 1500mah batteries so the only way to assure that I reached the summit was to get closer. I decided to leave my skis at the top of the lift and hike the rest of the way to the Hornli Hut with crampons and ice axe as the path was covered in snow and ice. I launched the drone from the Hornli Hut and I was able to fly the remaining 4000ft (1,200m) vertical and 1 mile (1.6km) distance to the summit and surf down the ridgeline. It was extremely windy and the wind just got stronger as I neared the summit but the chimera 7 performed very well.
