Drones

A week ago, I met up with my friends, Brian and Mayumi, to try out a couple of Mayumi’s drones. We had been thinking about trying Drones out about shooting footage and/or large scale photogrammetry.  It was great to finally give it all a whirl.

We went up into the canyons away from everything. It was a great overcast morning. The drones we used were:

The Phantom 4

Ma Vic Pro

Surprisingly, it was very easy to pilot each of the drones. After a little bit of explanation from Mayumi, Brian and I were up and flying with relative ease.

Now, the trickier part is flying and navigating the camera for getting good usable footage.

Here’s test footage (it’s nothing much but cool to see)
