For all the shots where the camera was on a pole, we used Contour cameras to get those shots. Check them out. http://contour.com/
For the actual pole itself that we hooked the camera to, we used a Go-Scope pole. I bought mine on this website. They make them for GoPro cameras, not Contour cameras, so we had to rig the camera to the pole to make it work. http://go-scope.com/
As far as making the camera look like it was "flying", I used a glidecam 2000 HD for all those shots. You can check out the exact model on their official website below where you can also buy them, and I don't get paid to say that :) http://www.glidecam.com/
As far as a techincal level goes...
This was filmed on... A Canon 5D Mark II Canon 5D Mark III Canon 7D Canon 60D Contour Camera
