In this case, the drone starts recording in front of the lens as it rises and rises, making a spherical panoramic at the end of his career. Then reverses the sense of the reproduction, in such a way that it starts in the spherical panoramic and descends toward the subject as if it were an asteroid falling. When the video is finished recording, the drone will return to its initial position.
