RC Helicopter

On the Wednesday before I left for England thanks to Matt and his radio controlled heli we shot some aerial shots for a Free Running doco that I’m editing at the moment. Its an amazing piece of equipment which has a lot of potential and unlimited camera angles. The heli rig requires two people to operate it. One person flys the heli while the other person operates the camera using a controller and goggles which has a live video signal of what the camera sees. I was fortunate enough to be operating the camera and had an awesome time doing it. Check out some sneak preview shots of what we got up to. Boom!
