Am I crazy, or is this tripod not that fast. Flowtech still has it beat. Especially that rotation on 3 legs. Rotating is the worst, even when the guy was filming the car he had to guestimate the height, and good luck 1 hand holding a bigger payload. I was hoping for a flowtech killer and go soooo let down. Also it's expensive for manfrotto.
This is a great quality interview, could you elaborate on the equipment and how you did this interview. What software and hardware to get this really good quality remote interview? Thanks for this is!
I can see you side of the argument, there are already rules in place for causing damage and acting irresponsibly. However I'm a bit torn. Can you give me some example of why the FAA is overstepping its boundaries? I have been in the "drone" game for a long time and have both registered for commercial and fun. When I have, basically a name tag on my UAV I do feel a little more responsibility to where it lands. Luckily I've never had to deal with a huge issue, (knock on wood) and in the past I would like to believe I would have been man enough in the event of a crash or property/physical damage to take responsibility. But with out a name tag on the unit you may be able to escape with out notice. Now someone could always fake a number or ID tag but then they could run into other issues with forgery or mis-information. I think I was so happy to have a legal why of flying I would have signed anything and handed over my firstborn child. Do you think the industry could police itself or what kind of better solutions do you think could be out there? Are you sure you could never put anything in potential danger with your mavic?
Coming from building multiple UAV's hundreds of times I feel so much safer going with DJI or FreeFly based on the RD those companies can do. Getting a drone to fly is the easy, keeping it in the air is the hard part. I can understand special need projects but do not involve any people in these special projects. Once you've had a scare with one of these drones you will understand the potential danger. All though disappointed with the number of competition DJI created for the Aerial Cinematographer, I was happy with the reliability they put in their product (mostly just recently, 2014 with the s900 and on). And if it took DJI that long to get a reliable system think about how much RD these one off's will need. Just be safe and don't think that these one off projects will be safe to use on set around people.
Maybe it's all a trick to make you feel some way about RED or Alexa, a grass roots fake campaign to either side with the youtube and buy a RED or reverse psychology to make you disagree with the youtube and purchase and Alexa. I watched that whole thing and all I can think about are the cameras he was talking about.
Which type of connectors do you mean? It seemed more connected with RED but the are usb, d-tap and a lot of other connections on the bottom of the camera plate for connection of all accessories and cameras. (Cameras that need external power)
