  1. What fun for Secret Cameraman. Cliffs are great.

  2. Yes – I can only imagine what visual delights are in the making out there in the cosmos right now!

  3. So Cool. I’ve been looking at these. Just waiting for my return. This is the one I was looking at.

    Keep Up the Good Work. Keeping my dream Alive!

    • Tommy – I will get Shane over here to comment. I think that might be the one he has! He has gone through a few iterations. :-) Warning: They are addicting for many people!

  4. Gee whiz… you flew us right to the edge without giving us a peek at the ocean. . .
    (sigh) (grin)

    We can wait until you master the updrafts and downdrafts. . .
    they can get tricky even on the calmest days. . .

    many real aircraft have learned that lesson the hard way…
    I don’t blame you for your caution. . .

    Until that time. . . Earl J.

    • Earl – trust me! I had the same sense of frustration when I was editing. Like you noted though, gonna take some time before heading out over the water…

  5. Did Shane ever voice the model he is using. . .?
    I imagine it is one of those multi-rotor versions…
    4-blades… they seem to be the most stable yet
    easiest to learn. . .

    I really like it. . .

    you’ll have fun editing the narration of a walk. . .
    increasing the volume as the camera comes close
    and lowering it as it flies away (not completely muted)… no?

    I’ve seen some video shot by two-person aerial contraptions…
    one person flies and the other operates the camera (pan and zoom)…
    that would be asking quite a bit on ONE secret cameraman…
    then again, there could easily be a top-secret cameraman
    to help out really, really behind the scenes … no?

    LOL

    • We’ve been playing around with some audio options, but mostly, that is an “add-on” – not part of the normal rig!

    • I have one of these on order…
      (I’m here on Maui for a few weeks…
      staying with my brother in Makawao…
      When is your next beachwalk recording…
      I want to break in and surprise you during the
      walk part…

      Don’t give me any lame excuses about
      not doing them anymore …
      I’m worthy of a special edition… no?

      LOL

      • LOL indeed! Aloha and welcome to Maui, Earl! We are on the mainland right now… So even if we were still doing beachwalks (haha, we are not…) we are not even on island! I hope you have a wonderful visit and enjoy playing with your drone.

        Check out Randy Jay Braun on Facebook – he is an amazing photographer (from Maui) who has been working for DJI for over a year and is a total drone inspiration!

  6. In reference to recent post on In the Transition just wanted to voice a thank you for living out there so I didn’t have too! Quadcopter exploits are like a flying portal. Brings back Arthur C. Clarke’s quote “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Your video is so descriptive I found the location on Google and read the real estate signs at the entry on Street-view.
    Can’t figure out the double line of bushes on the path to the cliff and what could be on the sign at the end.

    • Rush – The sign is your basic warning about cliffs and such at the end of the path. Nice work on the Googling too! Got any idea why the lots are not selling? Here is the listing site:

      Great quote too – really explains how these gaps in knowledge create two different groups of people altogether…

  7. I didn’t realize this was over a year old now. I thInk there was a legal problem that froze sales of the lots (it came up in the search results as I recall). This was one of my favorites!
