A man's attempt at an aerial family photo almost ended in a tumble down the mountainside once his remote began to slide.
The video, originally posted in the "r/funny" subreddit, shows the man place the controller beside himself after getting the drone to his desired altitude. Having turned away from the remote, the man immediately hops to his feet as it starts sliding and tries, to no avail, to snag the device before it falls completely down the mountainside.
