Thanks for the link! I took a look but my flight is missing. Surprisingly our sister flight is in there. Time to go digging through boxes in the basement.

There's a company here in Calgary that uses them to take aerial shots for real estate photography purposes...strangely though their banner is a big picture of the quadcopter...if it was me I certainly wouldn't be advertising how I did it, bur hey.

Ty,welcome to MA2A, home of the greatest bunch of aviation photographers on the world wide web. Stick around and make yourself at home. The flight is long, but the flight is even longer.

Welcome Ty!

I'm with you Steven, why put that out there. I don't see this ever replacing a helo assignment, but I think there are some unique situations where the footage could have commercial or stock applications. I'm thinking that I'll perfect my piloting skills and use it to video my brother walking his daughter (down the aisle) through the vineyard in Oregon in September.

Practically speaking, it's a great way to build some skills in case I ever want to go all out and hang a 1DX from a Movi10 unit at some point in the future. I certainly have little to no interest in the low level, low budget real estate market, but I could see it in some high budget situations where a helicopter wouldn't work and some unique perspectives are available. Seems like it would be a good skill set to have at ones fingertips.

Guess we wore out the old squadron flag, so they got a new one...

Is it against CAA regs?

Jeff, your "vision" never ceases to amaze...

Sold this and another RV A2A to an aviation-themed hotel in Port Aransas, TX.

They have an "RV Room" and at 16x24, on metal, these should anchor the room nicely!

Jim,

At this moment, I believe that the FAA restrictions prevent you from making money with a quadcopter. However, it may be worth your while speaking with your local FAA office to get some advice.

The FAA were overturned on a fine they laid on a commercial operator, just recently. I suppose we will see how this all pans out in due course.

Thanks Jay.

Is this RV image some of your A2A work? Normally harsh glare is a nemesis I avoid like the plague, but you used it like fine diamonds to create a thing of beauty in this image, Terrific work

Thanks Mark, but "speaking" to the FAA is kind of like speaking to the IRS, to be avoided at all costs.

Adobe just released an update for Lightroom that allows for mobile editing with a free iPad app, for those folks using Creative Cloud. I'm just syncing some photos, will report back in a bit...

The quadcopter/drone thing is a mess right now. For a few moments the one case where the judge threw out the FAA regulations as not being official law had those of us who want to get into the biz very excited. The FAA appealed it though which means we just have to wait for now. I can tell you there are more companies out there making TONS of money than any agency has the time or resources to track down.
One local company has several very top-shelf camera ships ($15k-$40k per rig) and flies any camera up to a Red Epic with cinema glass for national and international TV shows, commercials, docs, etc. They have no waiver or license of any kind and "fly" under the radar.
As I'm a pretty decent RC pilot and videographer it's really annoying to follow the rules sometimes! grrrrr!

Here's some rough footage I did recently with just a Phantom 2/GoPro rig. Had 15-20mph winds too! Done for a friend who works at the facility at no charge…well…they bought me dinner!
