      We are thrilled to document Steve’s (Hinton Jr.) record-breaking flight attempt using the SHOTOVER F1 RUSH camera system, which is truly groundbreaking technology in aerial cinematography

      - Dan Friedkin, founder of Pursuit Aviation

      It has taken multiple test flights and extensive engineering to create a system that can withstand the extreme speed and force required for Steve to break this record. The unique vantage points and quality of the video captured will be unlike anything that has been recorded at these speeds.
