Quite different than what I've seen. Interesting.

Arrrggghhh... how frustrating. At least show the damn thing. Not just the footage from it.

I know a guy ( seriously this is true ) who thought that rather than spend a lot of money on buying a drone it would be a good idea to attach his camera to a helium balloon. The strange thing is that when he returned home and I asked if I could see the pictures he looked a little embarrassed..then told me he'd stood and watched as the balloon ( and his camera ) rose to a great height then departed for scenes unknown...never to be seen again. He hadn't even thought to attach a label with his details on it 'just in case'. Expensive lesson!

#2 It was probably just a go pro that he hurled through the air when he jumped and this is some of the best footage he collected.

#4 It is, that's why I didn't understand #2's comment at first.

#4, #5 at 0:30 you can actually see a shadow of some sort of plane that he throws. So, it would be nice to show that plane.

#6, Ahhhh good eye sir, didn't catch that, but it explains the remarkable stability of the camera a lot better than just a good/lucky hurling.

I think it's just one of those glider toy planes with weight at the front, you just have to choose the model with the weight closest to that of your camera. At the beginning of the video you can see a reflection of it in the guy's mask.
