Firstly, I hope all of you are doing well!
Carrying on from Chris’ awesome video from Peru. I wanted to show you some videos from a little project I have been working on myself.
One of my favourite travel cinematographers, recently shared this shot of him flying across the tops of palm trees, it wasn’t an ordinary drone shot, but one created using a FPV Drone. After a little more searching on the topic of FPV drones I came across Johnny_FPV, this kid makes his living by creating cinematic FPV Shots, and his work is amazing.
Since there was to be no gliding for a foreseeable while, I decided to order one of these FPV drones and try it myself. I trained by flying a micro drone called a Tinywhoop round the house, and once I was proficient with this I decided to take out the full scale version.
Disclamer: I have a CAA “Licence” (Its referred to as Flyer ID) with a Operator ID and a Flyer ID and a friend as a spotter, and we do not fly near the public or livestock. The people in the video are my friends who happen to be Key Workers such as myself & we all work together at the same place.
Here is what I have created so far:
