Yea, it looks pretty crazy when he goes into that spin.
I know fur sure that I would have "painted" the inside of the helmet...

Chest cam footage is what that is.


I wanna see the rest of the videos. He had a camera on each leg, and his chest all pointing upwards. I guess cause he planned to dive.

He fell for over 14 minutes So I guess we have to wait for the rest.

Indeed you are correct about that.
Since they released this video that fast, I would guess that the other ones will be coming soon as well.

Hahaha

Thanks for your amusing "video-comment".
I agree that he is a show off, but I still respect him for what he has accomplished.

Honestly, I think it is only a matter of time.
All that is needed is the money and the time to do the training for it.

I can imagine that there will be a challenge soon as well. From one of those other famous Red Bull-heads doing crazy things.
How about Travis Pastrana doing a rocket-motorcycle jump from the moon, when he enters the same hight above the Earth as Felix jumped from, he assumes the position of a superman-grab and then ditches the bike.
Free-falling down and when finally landing, he sets down on a Hayabusa going 200Mph.
I would not be that surprised if something like it would happen.
