Jaguars at Silverstone Classic – Full Version

On 28/01/2014, in Video, by Andrew Bailey

The final cut of a day filming at the Silverstone Classic racing event last summer. Only watch this if you like beautiful old cars racing all out.

The aerial footage is right at the beginning of the film as we had to operate within the pit area and the pit garages. Flying a large multirotor in an enclosed space can be quite challenging because you end up generating your own turbulence.

 

Jaguars at Silverstone Classic 2013 – Taster

Some aerial video taken at the Silverstone Classic earlier this year. Some fabulous cars and I was lucky enough to be asked to take some close in footage inside the pit garages.  This clip is going to be part of a longer video featuring these cars racing during the event.

 

Steeple Inspection

We were asked to get in close to inspect the metal cross on top of a chapel steeple. This is a great example of how multi-rotors can be used for all sorts of applications. Way cheaper and easier than employing a Steeplejack.

A beautiful evening at the Cotswold Water Park taking stills of the amazing lakeside properties. The light was wonderful and we were very pleased with the results. Check the whole set out on Flickr

A bonus was to be able to take some video footage of some water skiing on the lake. We were not set up properly for this, but could not resist the temptation of filming and chasing the boat and skier.

 

Big Yellow Crane

Have you ever wanted to see one of the big yellow construction cranes up close? Our Hex took a good look around and this is the result.

This video demonstrates the potential for using multi-rotors for inspection of otherwise inaccessible places and structures.

 

Shooting High took advantage of the wonderful early morning sun today to send its hexacopter high above Clifton High School to take photos and some video footage. The School has been using a very old non-digital aerial photo for their prospectus and web site and the site has changed enough in recent years so it was time to take some new photos from on high.

The only surprise of the morning was that the resident seagulls, probably with chicks in their nests, decided that the hex was a threat and repeatedly flew at it making the most awful noise. Our apologies to local residents who must have been disturbed by the din these birds kicked up.

Our camera operator, Owen Benson of Benson Visuals was able to compose pictures alongside Anna from the school using the live link and remote camera control. Pin sharp pictures are possible from the hovering hex and both vertical and oblique pictures are stunning. The video footage will be included in a promotional video which is being worked on at the moment.
