This is so awesome we're surprised no one else has done this yet!
L.A.-based Corridor Digital is a tiny production company that makes full-time YouTube videos. Their latest combines a Dronefly and a GoPro, which we've seen before on the 'Tube—but they've also added the Man of Steel, which we haven't. Enough talk, behold:

To accomplish this they've partnered up with Patreon, an organization set up to back creative content producers through crowdsourced funding. Sadly I don't see much application for the service to industrial design, but for those of you curious, here's how the Patreon system works:
