Video: Fly Along with a Drone Following the QLine on a Sparkling Detroit Day





Here's a chance to look down on the QLine, though not the way that critics do for reasons of cost, speed, route or urban transportation policy.

This view from above is in a new minute-plus video from Rossetti, a downtown architecture firm that designed the line's 20 stations. It posts the drone video below, shot on a sunny, cloudless day.

The aerial camera follows a southbound ride from New Center to Campus Martius, including the tandem streetcars scene at right. Viewers see massive battery packs atop the first car and the roof-mounted cooling/heating units further back.

Also notable (at the 39-second mark) is a street jogger who seems as though he almost could match the QLine if he picked up his pace just a bit. (Ah, but now we look down in both senses.)    

This breezy trip -- with no red lights or blocked track -- is accompanied by a bouncy keyboard composition by Jeremy Paczos, an advertising design senior at the College for Creative Studies.

All aboard for a quick zip down Woodward.
