Aerial Photography and Videos

Hover over a thumbnail to see its descriptive filename. Click on any thumbnail to see a full-sized correctly-proportioned original in its own window.
Note that many of these shots are just partial screen-grabs from video, meaning that they are much lower quality than full high-resolution images, such as the group photo on the last page. The high-res photos can be taken simultaneously with video when using the larger "Reconn" craft, which is used when airspace- and ground hazards (trees, buildings, people) aren't too much of an issue. Otherwise I use the smaller "Merlin" quad.
For some early edited video compilations, see these sequences from the Canterbury high country and this selection from the training days.
