Well, here is my opening post. 1) The whole subject of Drones interests me and the reason for signing up to UAV Coach Web site is that I have just purchased low cost, entry level prosumer camera Drone, the Parrot Bebop 3. I have downloaded the manual and read it several times but before launching a flight of any potential consequence, I am researching useful resources before doing what I purchased the drone to do. In addition I am of course wanting to avoid seriously crashing my Drone or getting arrested for buzzing the local Ministry of Defense site. 2) I am an amateur/semi professional videographer and about to film a natural history programme I have been planning for 6 months. The programme is setting a Winter poem to the small screen with words of the poem and music as the sound track and relevant stunning moving images as the visual contribution. The programme involves significant video of rural and farmhouse scenes, together with some less rural locations. I have written the script around the poem and am currently researching locations and planning the various styles of shots to both tell the story well and create an appropriate visual impact for each scene to do justice to the poem (and the audience). I have decided that one or two of the shots would be beneficially taken from an elevated vantage point of which there are none in the currently chosen ideal location(s). I therefore have the choice of hiring a tower or a very large camera crane or even a helicopter, none of which can I afford. I am therefore left with the limited choice of deleting the scenes or using a drone camera. I also want to film another scene moving about 1 metre above ground level along a ploughed furrow at about 3 metres /sec and without about 30 metres of level camera dolly track and the camera dolly of course, the shot is going to be quite bumpy to say the least not to mention visually unattractive. I am videoing in Full HD and based on shots I have seen taken by others using the Bebop Drone from elevated locations, I feel I may get the results I looking for from this entry level pro-user toy. You can no doubt appreciate that trying a camera drone for the aforementioned shots is a potentially sensible proposition but I will need to be a reasonably decent pilot even if the Bebop's camera stability is legendary. I found your Web site whilst browsing for assistance /guidance and was interested to note you offered advice for flying a Quadcopter and you have a forum with some pretty impressive contributors. I feel, that if successful, I will have a pretty interesting contribution to make to your site as well. There you go, that's my story and however ambitious it may sound, I am going to do it somehow. I wish you ongoing success with your Web site.
