Here's a little video I've put together from the recent Burning Man, which is a week long ~50,000 person arts festival held in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada.

 

I shot it using my small homemade tricopter with a hard mounted gopro using FPV.

Hi Ziv, yeah I saw that preview vid of yours the other day. Looks good! Was that you flying around the man as it was burning? Did you fly fpv at night? I saw a couple of other guys flying multis. I'm looking forward to your final edit.

Hopefully next time ill have a better quality platform. Gotta get my night flight capability sorted too!

Hi Glann, 

thanks! im glad you like it!

It wasnt me flying at the man burn or the temple burn, I know there where a few out there, there was a 1 rotor copter at the man burn, good pilot!! :)

I used FPV at night, but was looking at the copter directly all the time, i had a few EL wire lights on it!

Are you coming to decompression? im thinking to bring the copter to fly.. depending on the wind etc...

cheers!

Ziv.

I wont be coming to decompression unfortunately. I'm traveling central america for the next 4 months so shipped my copter and gear back to nz before leaving san fran. Sucks to have to wait till then to fly again, but gives me time to plan what the next copters to build will be :)

Thanks, for sharing these vids guys.  We don't see too many deserts where I'm am except those snow deserts in the winter, when it's too cold to fly. Brrr.

Also, do they really burn everything down at the end of the show?

Awesome footage of this otherworldly event! Thanks for sharing. 

PS: What's the music? Perfect choice of music!
