How Does RC Videography Work?
Two people, a pilot and a cameraman fly our revolutionary crafts. While the pilot navigates the helicopter along a chosen flight path, the cameraman is able to independently frame and track subjects using a high-definition downlink displayed on a ground based monitor. This capability has the added benefit of allowing the director/DP to review and recapture scenes as needed, in real-time. Almost any camera under 10 lbs can be mounted on the craft’s 3-axis digitally stabilized gimbal, allowing 360 degrees of pan, and 90 degrees of tilt, while simultaneously stabilizing these axis and maintaining a perfectly level horizon.
