DIY Drones Take on Silicon Valley
Amateur drone makers are sending their do-it-yourself creations up into the skies of Silicon Valley. WSJ's Andy Jordan reports from San Francisco on the stunning footage they're capturing.
This is the story I shot video footage for. Andreas Oesterer and Mark Harrison are featured.
And here is the full flight video:
very cool. we should join forces. I fly at Crissy Field all the time. here are some of my videos:
Jason, that's a beautiful shot over the city... very nice, and great video!
When i first saw this video , i thought you must be using FPV, as it was so good, and you seem to travel further than line of sight. So i must congratulate you on having such good flying skills, as i constently loose my quad once it gets further than a few hundred feet. :-)
Jason, awesome video! You're a good pilot! Which mode do you usually fly, Simple or just Stabilize?
I noticed quite a large overhang on your prop mountings, I thought I saw a few vibrations at one point. Any aerodynamic vibration can get magnified into an eccentric movement. Those motor arms must be very stiff.
Nice vid. and flying. Is that a GoPro fixed mounted?
wow that is very good collection of video Jason! Glad you have a bit more time now to fly that 2.5.x is out and gives a lot more stability.
I really like your shots!
jason, awesome video. From where did you buy those prop mounts?
Those are from Tower hobbies. I have a lot of trouble finding them from other suppliers, but I swear by them. The cheap ones that ship with motors pop off all the time for me.
Jason, you're in the wallstreet journal! nicely done!!
