Countless hours go into training with the Inspire 1, our primary aerial rig. The goal is to keep focus on a Point Of Interest and fly the pants off the “drone” at the same time. It’s finger acrobatics … it’s hand-eye-bird-camera control … it aint easy and it’s vital to good aerial video. Smooth, flowing motion. Props go out to all those action-catching videographers out there, it’s so much more difficult than you’d imagine to get The Shot.
Last time out, having a hour or so to spare, I stopped at a local industrial complex to put some time in. As I sat there, spinning laps around the most convenient POI at the moment (my wife’s car), it struck me… it’s a dance! That classic tune started dancing thru my head and apparently ended-up in my fingers.
