Went pretty viral in various news articles around the World.
The drone pilot has apparently had some good offers from all sorts of places (movie production in particular) since this and another couple of their vids came to light.

Very simply little cinewhoop or similar, get into tight spots relatively safely.

They said that was one take, and probably was, but who knows how many takes they did before they didn't touch and crash as they often do.
Virtually indestructible of these little drones means you can do this and not have too much risk or injury or damage to drone / property.

Goggles should come with the sort of path-prediction lines that are found on in-car reversing cameras. Rather harder to implement in a 3-d environment, but it would make this sort of thing a lot easier.

Probably one day, but then will also possibly be self flying, which will take away the fun of FPV.

Lack of peripheral vision is a big thing to get used to with FPV, that's bad enough with DJI goggles white / RE.
Pre trip investigation to all surroundings on a flight, a 'map' written down of the flight, as it wouldn't surprise me if the pilot had a 2IC beside him watching on 2nd goggles and telling him what's coming up . . . like a rally car co driver / navigator telling the driver what's over the hill, corner coming, speed needed, etc.
