Hold your fire! it did not fly over them. ;-)
This weekend we had the XVI International half marathon of Rio with a beautifull day, gorgeous location and 20.000 runners. As I am not into running, I thought it would be a great opportunity to experiment the potential of covering a big event from the privileged birds eye view of a multicopter and it surpassed my expectations!
On top of the nice images, I was really surprised to see the positive crowd reaction and interaction with the quad. They did not feel concerned or threathened by it - after all, it is smal, quiet and never flew above their heads. Instead, they were really excited as if they were playing with it and saluting it. I could even get the audio from their cheers over the noise of the props wash!
I am flying a XA x650 frame / Naza FC+GPS / Jdrones gimbal / Gopro. No post stabilization on this cut! Amazing what a $50 gimbal can do, despite some wind. Got to be really gentle on the sticks though. Gabriel2584 is flying a F450/Naza/Gopro/self-made gimbal. He had some servo jittering problem that required post stabilization.
Let me know your thoughts!
