Postby petefj40 » Mon May 25, 2015 8:53 pm

Hi guys.

This Saturday @ 8am the on 30th of May 2015, Christchurch's Central Police Building will be getting Imploded.
Last Sunday I was lucky enough to get permission to get my drone close to it.
Here's a 1:35sec clip of my first aerial view of the demo job.

Enjoy. Like n share round. Select "HD".

Nice footage, that drone/camera system is rock steady 8)

Is that manually flown or are you using way points?

Good question.
Flying by waypoints for the "Inspire 1" drone I use isn't far away but we have been waiting for it a while now..

Yes, it's being flown in semi manual control. "P" (position) mode. Using GPS. So as soon as I leave the controls alone it stay's in one point in up to 80kmph winds. ;)
Cheers!

I was one of 4 official drone operators for the implosion last Sunday.

A friend of mine Jared was one too, he's also a full time photographer.
He just finished putting this clip together. If you like it share it round.
