This Star Wars live-action drone battle is most impressive

TODO alt text

Star Wars: The Force Awakens had some pretty thrilling spaceship battles, but even Poe Dameron himself may be outmatched by these tiny aces. Disney should totally hire these drone pilots to do the dogfighting scenes for Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode 8.

Combining first-person footage from skilled drone pilots with some cleverly captured miniature cockpit scenes, Corridor Digital created a live-action aerial battle fit for Rogue Squadron. Don't believe those intense stunts were legit? Ok, it wasn't actually a tiny X-Wing and TIE fighters up there, but the aerial acrobatics are all real. Here's the making-of video to prove it.
