Re: Slowly getting the hang of it

Hi Guys

I finally found something on this board I know about.

I decided to do Aerial Videography seven long years ago. I currently have a Trex 700 streched to 800 with DJI Ace One and 3 axis stabiled Gimbal. I can haul up to a 5d but I shoot with a T3i.
Yes, on occasion I do crash. Im on my 3rd T3i

I also have a DJI Flamewheel 550 with naza GPS. I carry a gopro on that.

Flying any RC craft is just like Video production. You cant learn it over a month. Get ready to Practice Practice Practice.

It is getting easier....but so far you still need to know how to fly.

You guys help me become a better editor and I can teach you EVERYTHING about flying a camera through the air with an RC platform

My Heli



My Gimbal

Hot dam that's a mean machine, Is that chopper as big as it seems?
Have you a shot of it with something of a known size for perspective..
Edit so that your fantastic opening sequences and your equally exciting closing scenes are really close together (lol)

The Body of the heli is about 5 feet long. Blades are 800mmx2 so its roughly a 170 cm or 6 foot rotor disk It does become the center of attention when it fires up.
