Now that's what I like to see, some high flying in many different locations! Was that video processed? I really liked the part where that kitty puffed up as the DF approached it on the roof!

Hi Dirk,

I looked at the whole video and have to say that I am impressed. Holding the DF in position and doing those slow pans is not an easy thing to do, especially when carrying a payload close to the limit. I especially liked the sneakup on the cat.

Are you using any post processing deshaking on the video? Also, any estimate on the max height you were flying? Some looked to be around the 300' level.

Great work, Dirk. Doh! Thanks for putting this together - brings back fond memories of my 6 months in England. Thanks also for the "banned" MicroDrone video.

Cheers,
Bruce

Hi all,

Well, I used a little trick from the old movies, like when they had model battle ships etc, I slowed the video down by 50% That is the only post-processing I did, I can post an orignal clip from my latest flights to show you how it was originally. It works though, if you look at the cars and people you will notice they are slow.

The Casio EX-S600 camera is set at 400iso and infinity focus, no image stabalization, I have got better at flying now, I am not in a state of constant panic like I used to be, so maybe some of this is showing up in the results. Ti on, levelled, trimmed nose and yaw to balance it and for any wind and training off.

As for height I have no idea, the church you see in the clips is Beverley Minster, a quick google could not find the height, I do have access to a hypsometer so I could measure it, in fact I might have to now, as I am curious to know. Safe to say over 300' yes.

Basically flying as high as I dare, and still be able to see what direction etc, only with little wind and no cloud and a clear head would I try this though.

The full video compressed for upping to youtube is here: http://www.digithull.com/fly_comp.mov (43MB)

The cat is my sister's 'Lucky'

Raw video clip of one of the pans here (14MB):

You can see why I slowed it down now, the oldest trick in the book!

Some images of my super high tec set up what is missing is the state of the art cable tie I wrap around the top of the housing and up over the battery for bit more holding power than just the double sided tape I used to use.

Thankyou, I am proud, but I can only get better, it's nice to be appreciated though. Practice practice practice........

Flying without all that stuff attached is so much fun now, relaxing and always makes me smile if not laugh with pleasure, justifies spending all that money!
