Think skydiving from a plane is scary? Try letting a drone carry you into dizzying heights and then making the leap of faith from there.

Latvian drone maker Aerones posted a video recently showing skydiver Ingus Augstkalns being picked up by one of its drone and flying to a height of around 1,080 feet.

He then let go, deployed his parachute, and safely made it to the ground.

This single dive took six months of preparation, mainly to make sure that the drone could hold Augstkalns’ weight.
