I posted some local drone videos in the photos thread a few months ago and got shit for going OT there. So now that we have an aerial photos thread I'll throw the dice again and see if it's OK to post aerial videos here Wink

The YouTube channel is here.

A sample video of Uptown from above is below:

Every time I think about getting one, I think about all the headaches and awkward conversations with people. Maybe I'm scarred from all the difficulties I've had in the past trying to take pictures in the Montreal Metro. They treat you like a damn criminal there for admiring the architecture.

I really just want one to take cool footage of the Light Rail when it's built... chase shots of the trains through Waterloo Park at 70 km/h, then rising up over top of the Perimeter Institute would be awesome.

Canard, is it bad that I heard the Star Wars music when you talked of the chase shots with a drone. Maybe I need to go back to bed!
It would be awesome to watch though!

Hmm, I was planing on a Gai Barone soundtrack, but whatever Smile

In all honesty - to anyone who does have a drone, what kind of confrontations have you had with people when flying in public places?

Georeferenced photos on your Google Maps from 1940's anyone?

I got a stern finger wag from a carabiniere when I took a photo of a subway car in the Rome metro system.
