Really cool video of some guys hiking, and then "flying" through the Chamonix region of France. The perspective they're showing of the world around them is absolutely stunning. Cool footage of course, but I wonder if it shouldn't remain private? Would you post footage of yourself riding a motorbike at 150mph on open road on the internet, with your name on it? The odds of getting caught by the DGAC are much smaller of course, but still it sends the signal "paraglider pilots don't give a damn about VFR or any kind of rules". Which puts people discussing with authorities about sites or flying restrictions in a weak position... With the integration at GoPro, this video got 22k views, how nice! Awesome video, but I really do think it's going to make it look even more like paragliders don't care about the rules, and will break them anyways.
