A Solo Winter

Winter came late, and not the best of winters, but I had a ton of fun flying my new drone. Here are some of my best video clips that I shot last fall/winter with my new Drone, “Solo!”

Flying High over the 20th ADK Mountainfest

Solo had a great time at the 20th ADK Mountainfest and captured some spectacular images. His first trip to the Adirondacks and he can’t wait to return. Many thanks to The Mountaineer and Rock and River for all the hospitality.

AERIAL VIDEO AND PHOTOS IN A BACKPACK
Solo does more than just get cool aerial shots: It gives me a full Cinematic toolkit in the software — “an automatic crane, dolly, jib, boom, slider, tripod and, of course, helicopter”. Go Pro-Black 1&2Now I can concentrate on filming and what the camera sees and let Solo from 3DR do the real work of flying. I have outfitted Solo with two Go Pro Blacks. One with a standard wide angle lens and one with a special aerial lens of 31 mm (no fish eye). These cameras can shoot 4K and up to 120 fps. Everything I need, and it all fits in a backpack, ready to take into the mountains.

I had fun testing the new rig several weeks ago with Jim Surette of Granite Films and Mike St. Pierre of Hyperlite Mountain Gear. No Ice! But we had fun practicing with the new Drone! Solo is definitely the smartest Drone I have flown.  The testing is going well and Solo has performed better than any of my other Drones. The gimbal stabilization, and live view from the camera to the tablet is amazing. I am looking forward to the great video I know this unit will deliver. Stay tuned!
