Shooting the ground with a Sony Nex5 and a 16mm pancake lense

Hi All, Just got going with some aerial photos with my Sony Nex5 and it looks like a hover of 5 feet or 150cm will work perfect for natural ground shots to make a good natural feel to the floor print, ie tarmac shot at full quality on the NEX gives an actual life size print shot at 5 feet using a 16mm pancake lense.

If you want to get involved let me know.

A strong guy with a 10ft (or maybe even 5ft depending on FOV) pole would work well too :o)

Mike you are 100% right, this was being discussed in meetings yesterday.
Uav's will be better in some situations but a boom and a remote trigger will do the job. The Nex7 however will be able to fly double the hight ish and still capture the same detail. 
The test will go on so I will share my findings.
