We have built our own Quadcopter from scratch, buying parts from different dealers, and building / assembling it ourselves.
The frame has been designed for cinematic flights, incorporating a six bobbin dampening system, with room to mount a GoPro camera on either the front and / or rear.
To keep the GoPro camera safe, the frame incorporates a protected “roll-cage” section towards the front.
It was really good to get the kids proactively involved in the building / assembly, bench testing and test flight process.
We really look forward to using it in the field to record video film, when we reach interesting locations throughout our Iceland Expedition.
Check out this truly inspirational video about Quadcopter flying in Iceland by Elisabetta Rosso (Inspirational Photographer) – this gives us a goal to strive towards.
If we can capture some top quality video footage like this on our Expedition, it will really add additional value to our already epic trip.
