Dragonboat Rush- Teambuilding aerial video
Our recent aerial video project had us flying our UAS to film a dragonboat team building event at the Putrajaya Marina Center. For more of our aerial videos: Aerial Videos Malaysia by WolFang Digital
Flying a UAS to film sceneries and static subjects is easy. The challenge is taken to the next level when your subjects are constantly moving. The difficulty is increased when you are flying over a large body of water such as the Putrajaya lake.
Let’s be clear; they are not called drones anymore. According to FAA (Federal Aviation Authority of USA) officially, they are now known as UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System).
I had to pilot my UAS and fly fairly close to the dragonboats to record the participants’ expressions clearly. This takes a lot of precision and focus.Baron (Aerial Cinematographer)
I had to pilot my UAS and fly fairly close to the dragonboats to record the participants’ expressions clearly. This takes a lot of precision and focus. Which is why one should never distract or talk to a UAS pilot while he/she is remotely piloting a UAS.
We had a rescue boat at our command. At all times we were on this boat, patrolling around the dragonboats. Our landing platform was a 1M X 1M clearance on this small rescue boat. This was the only way I could take-off and land. The boat was never completely still on account of the waves. Making both take-off and landing a test of focus and quick reflexes.
