Drone following Military Train

Follow by Email
One continuous shot of the SMFKB military train heading into San Luis Obispo, CA after training exercises at Camp Roberts on 3/20/18. Lead by Union Pacific 4567, Union Pacific 4859, Kansas City Southern 3902, Kansas City Southern 3909, and Union Pacific 2621 locomotives. Huge thanks to Tim Runnels and Bob Schrempp for giving me the heads up on this one! Drone: DJI Phantom 4

Comments from Youtube

jfreelan1964 : In a weird sort of way that looks like a model train coming around the curve.

Albert : I think this train contains more military material than all of Denmark has in total :D

Sammy B Films : That's a long train!

CraftyFoxe : Awesome video! Wonder if they noticed there's a drone flying around them especially when it's carrying military equipment

PLPawulonPL : 2:45 Lucky xD

Morgan Freeman : It's so awesome you didn't use that royalty free upbeat glitch-hoppidy dubstep garbage that is in most youtube videos nowadays. That stuff drives me insane to the point I stop watching the video. Stones are a great choice.

Nelso5000 : *Just Cause 3 flashbacks intensify*

Sky McGowin : Grade A camera work, nicely done.

Cyber MacGyver : I came for the drones... and stayed for the stones πŸ‘Œ

Sir Galahad : This is the best drone video I've ever seen on YouTube. Great camera work. Great Flying. Great and interesting content, and FANTASTIC choice of music ! I would give this a million likes if I could !

Niranjan adyar : Awesome shot of the train. One of the best drone shot video of train, I have ever seen. The starting shot from the curve to engine is awesome. Very well planned shot.

Chris Ackerley : Absolutely outstanding video! If you aren't already working as a pro videographer in the movie/TV industry, you should be! This is the best quality amateur video I have ever seen on YouTube. The sound track is perfectly mated to the video.

Echo5562 : Nice great music overlay fits theme

Tuck WS : This was the 1-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team moving equipment from Camp Roberts straight to Ft Irwin, CA at the National Training Center....

Shoddy Productions : That was amazing ! Hollywood quality intro for a war movie I want to watch.
