Aerial car chasing at night

Following a car at dark night with normal GoPro settings. I have to test the Protune mode with custom white balance params... Copter and radio FX to have some fun :)

Aerial car chase

Trying to chase a car controlling the quadcopter from the passenger seat. The signal is quite good despite being under the car roof, but you can´t fly as far as when the controller has a direct link with the quadcopter.

Canyon Walls

A short walk by the canyon walls on a cloudy day. I should have removed the ND filter, the lack of light makes the objects look not well defined.

Distance test - DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D, miniOSD, and FPV

I´m back to the blog! This time to test the distance I can reach with the DJI Phantom 2 with the gimbal Zenmuse H3-3D, the miniOSD, and the InmersionRC 600mW video transmitter for PFV.

What I like about the Phantom is its small size, so you can fit all the equipment in a comfortable backpack and carry everything safely wherever you want to go.

The batteries last about 15 minutes with normal flight, not bad for its 1,350kg. With the stock Phantom 2, I´ve measured 2.6 Km still with control and video signal in a flat scenario!!

Aerial Showreel 2014

V017. Quick showreel of my best moments of 2014 recording video from a quadcopter. There are still many things to improve in order to obtain better shots and video quality, but so far I am pretty happy with the results of this past year.

The Alcázar of Segovia (Spain) Aerial

V016.

The unique silhouette and privileged location of theAlcázar of Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage site along with the massive aquaduct and town of Segovia which both lie nearby, is several centuries old, though the location has been in use as a fort since the 12th century. Primarily Gothic with Renaissance alterations, it was originally a fortress (year 1122), but has also been a royal palace. The castle is surrounded by two rivers–Clamores and Eresma–flowing on either side. These rivers not only provide water for the greenery around the castle, but also add an extra layer of defense.

Most part of the shots are from the front view. For safety reasons I didn´t fly over the entrance of the Alcázar, where all the visitors are walking around.
