Need Aerial Video? Or Info on it?

Im excited. I just noticed this sub forum and as you can see I have been busy viewing the post so sorry for all the new post.
A few years ago I saw my first video shot from an RC heli on a ski porn website I used to visit. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to learn. So, I have spent the last few years learning how to fly, build and maintain RC air platforms. Below is some footage I shot, just to test for vibes ect. This was shot from my heli.No post production stabilizaton. One swipe with smoothcam and this footage is rock solid

I am looking for help on video production, or to step up what I put on the web .I want my video to look as nice as some of yours. I do know most of the tech end , how to edit and get something up on the web, but I need to know so much more.
After reading some post in this sub form I realize a couple of things
I finally can help out here, I dont feel like Im just taking and not giving
Someone may want their camera hauled around.

So, If you want to help me get better at what video I put up I will gladly teach and help with everything technical with RC helis and multirotors.

I do know quite a lot about Gimbals, Gimbal stabilization, chasing vibes, auto pilot systems, video downlinks and monitors ect

anyone want to partner up?

Re: Need Aerial Video? Or Info on it?

Hi John,

do you know anything about installing and configuring HoverFly Pro's?

I purchased the HFPro about a year ago and just haven't had the time to install and setup. I've built two Quads with CC controllers, a Hex with a DJI NAZA w/GPS and I'd like to build a much more professional X8 using the HFPro but could use some help.

Here's the type of video I'm producing:

There's a lot of the same footage that I've posted before but I'm trying to learn Davinci's Resolve so I regraded footage that I'm pretty familiar with so that I could get a sense of how different it was grading it with Color.

Anyway, I'm located in Thousand Oaks CA where are you located?

Really Nice work Chuck. Thats what Im shooting for. Good sharp imaging, good lighting and good color. My clips are soft, and just dont have that crisp pro look. I know that is time behind the lens and learning.

I have nevr set up a hoverfly but I will read up on it. They are all pretty much the same. I have learned that balanced payload and props are gold in this hobby/Biz.
Are you wanting to use the Hoverfly for gimbal and multirotor controller or just gimbal?

Im in San Diego, just down the road.
