    I finally pulled the trigger on a DJI Phantom, so I'll be making aerial videos of various abandoned locations.

    I plan to keep them short and sweet as I see too many drone videos that get very boring very quickly.

    Here's my second video I took at Fullers Earth Works - Redhill.



    Hope you enjoy!

    (Advice and critique is welcome as I'm new this drone photography thing)

    I'd like one of these too. I always enjoy the footage captured by them. Nice little video, much preferred to these 'walk-around' videos.

    Interesting video and a nice view of the building,
    but I have to ask... isnt it kind of cheating?

    Cheating at what? Its a completely new medium, and not equivalent to an internal explore if thats what you mean; but its not trying to be either. Its an aspect that a "normal" explore cant capture, and therefore i welcome it as a fascinating alternative.
    In a perfect world, people would use drone vids/stills to show the externals of a site alongside internal photos.

    I think it's more like having a wank watching a porn movie; rather than getting hands on and dirty ;) But whatever floats your boat :thumb

    That’s a good analogy. Using a drone does allow you to get a taste of the action for far less effort, without the risk of being given something you can’t get rid of.

    That said, I maintain that both avenues are satisfying in their own right.

    Thanks guys! It would be great to use the video with a normal photo report, inside and outside. A little bit like the guys from Hell on Earth do.

    Great video. I've a 3DR Solo. Best little upgrade I got for it was stronger antennas. I bought a set for indoor wifi boosters. It's helped me keep the signal of my quad without suddenly ruining a shot by the quad wanting to return home. Have a google for ones for DJI controllers.
