This was delightful! One of those machines I needed to watch multiple times because some of the mechanisms are so clever! I’m also very jealous of his house, backing on to that beautiful setting.


Wonderful thing! But there’s a guy with too much time on his hands.

The drone operator must have practiced that run quite a few times as well. I am sure there were several attempts where the machine worked but the camera work didn’t.
