To get a better overview of the Hastings Aerodrome Manager Kevin England asked if I could get images and video using the Photodrone. It was very windy and on the boarder of being flyable but as all the planes were lined up we gave it a go. Glenn Taylor on the camera controls for the first time did a great job!
Tim Whittaker Photography and the Photodrone was involved with Indelible Film & Video in producing the intro movie for the awards again this year providing the fly-through and other aerial clips. We join the action from the satellite view at 400′agl to descend on Elephant Hill Winery and fly through the alley to the view of Cape Kidnappers.
