I know Dave has been tinkering with drones, but I dont think he is masquerading as Chris Kippenberger.
Nice article from gizmodo with multiple embedded videos

Dave, would love to hear about your drone experiences!

I am currently looking at getting something to play around with, the Dji Phantom seems to be the pick of the amateur ones straight out of the box.

Some really cool vids there. I have built the drone, however haven't used it yet. Have wanted to do a bit of a video for a while but never gotten around to it.

The problem of vid is providing evidance of any illegal driving, slightly crossing double lines is easy to do and if there is video there is proof

I'd be wanting to practice heaps using the drone before putting a decent camera on it, or use a cheap camera

Interesting concept though

I dont think mounting a dslr is going to work, its too heavy
Surely you just use a gopro or similar? The video from these seems great now
and they arent too expensive, and are designed to survive drone crashes anyway?

Pics of the drone? DIY kit?

Luckily for me, i often receive free cameras though work, so i always end up with some gear i keep.
some of the cameras i have kept are sony NEX-5R's which shoot 1080p 60fps in ultra clear format. i have kept these for this purpose. i never paid for them so im not going to cry too much if i break them.
oh and they're pretty light too.

the only thing i haven't gotten around to buying is the FPV goggles etc... so i can fly this thing by sight, but id prefer to have the setup where i can see what the drone can see.


This is it, took this photo about a year ago. a bit has changed since then.

its a custom setup, but with pre made components.
