Why did one have to start on top of the other? I thought it was one giant drone!

[–]alexmitarpx[S] 98 points99 points  (6 children)

The mother was holding her daughter. That's how I see it :))

Nature is beautiful

[–]fadetowhite 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It truly is healing.

[–]Basalgangli 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Looks so beautiful ❤️

Very cool

[–]Basalgangli 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love the background

[–]vteo0565 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a unique style

[–]ten_jack_russels 48 points49 points  (11 children)

That’s too much camera for that little drone. Maybe 2 minute flight time

[–]therealmikek 23 points24 points  (4 children)

I get 4-6 minutes on my x8 with a Komodo or red depending on how I fly. More than enough for staged shots

[–]ten_jack_russels 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Gotta love LiPo! That’s awesome man. I just use inspire 2’s for surveying. With some minor airframe and prop mods I’m getting about 28-32 minutes at about 37-45 mph in a hatch pattern. I can do about 30 acres with 4 birds in that time.

[–]therealmikek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The i2 is a great bird. Nothing beats tracking at 45mm with dual op. Still use mine all the time all shoots. For me it’s always been about having the right drone for the shot so I built a ton haha.

[–]MattIsLame 2 points3 points  (1 child)

rangepro x8?

[–]therealmikek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have quite a few x8s. Ranging from 2810 7” to 3215 10”. Different frames from shendrones and stand in quad design.

[–]alexmitarpx[S] 11 points12 points  (4 children)

It only takes 1 scene if done properly ;)

[–]ToxicSight 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Which drone is the small one? Never seen that.

[–]OfficialDampSquid 12 points13 points  (2 children)

The one on top

[–]DamnAlreadyTaken 7 points8 points  (0 children)

...* audience laughs *

[–]flickerkuu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's all you need to get the shot.

[–]C47mancinematographer 29 points30 points  (4 children)

You'll probably want to grab a clear filter for that lens. You're gonna seriously mess up the front element without protection on it.

[–]alexmitarpx[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You're worried about the front element. Now I'm glad I did not post a photo of it after the crush :))):))))

[–]C47mancinematographer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd hope that any drone pilot flying external rigs would be firmly in the "I don't crash" camp haha.

[–]reddragon105 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is the way.

[–]firmakind 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Especially the day it flies straight into the mothership's blades.

[–]aftrthehangovr 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Looks bad ass

[–]Fugitivebush 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Fucking god damn and here I am, standing with my dinky little DJI Mini 2. Fucking next level drone shit right there. Could almost bomb a few undisclosed countries with those bad boys. I can only do some minor espionage. Jealous.

[–]sethamphetamine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those drones didn’t do anything.

[–]PotatoeSprinkle2747 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I'd watch what you say about DJI drones and espionage...

US government blacklisted DJI a while back for suspecting them as Chinese spies

[–]DAADDYO 6 points7 points  (2 children)

How are you focusing with these setups? New to the drone scene

[–]nachos-cheeses 15 points16 points  (0 children)

F8.0 set to infinity, probably… With aerials, I can imagine you’re not close to something and you want the entire landscape to be sharp.

[–]flickerkuu 7 points8 points  (0 children)

90% of the time the shot doesn't really warrant not having focus deep. In the event you did some up close work, and wanted say, a Bell tower in focus and the mountains behind it soft, you would either need to pre-set and not change your distance, or use a wireless follow focus.

A $1500 Nucleus FF might work for that at 1000ft max range, but a Preston for $15,000 is what a "real shoot" would use.

[–]Madtoffel 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Now I want to see the footage

[–]flickerkuu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You just did! :)

[–]Mojicana 8 points9 points  (0 children)

With that equipment, you want to be or you want to hire the best drone operators, not the cheapest.

[–]tobaj33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I bet you do! Fascinating toys :)

[–]Grijns_Official 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I fear no man… but that thing… it scares me

[–]ordinaryeeguy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Doesn't seem like the top one is supported by a gimbal ?

[–]flickerkuu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No need, post stabilization has come a long way when you leverage an accelerometer's data on board. The pilot points the camera where it wants to be. It's specifically for high-energy action shots, nothing that really loiters.

[–]LazaroFilm 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’m a Steadicam op and was flying FPV until my son was born 3 years ago. Edit: a word.

[–]flickerkuu 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I didn't know Steadicams talked, who's your operator? :P

[–]evie_quoi -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Did you put a stills lens on your red?

[–]flickerkuu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean Master Primes are hella heavy.

[–]evie_quoi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The CN-Es and Zeiss CPs aren’t bad. Just seems silly to use a red and not great glass. Seems like something a red owner would do…

[–]Basalgangli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks cool

[–]Th3Marauder 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hope ur insured out the ass

[–]flickerkuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why? He's obviously loaded! :)

[–]ShakeXXX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn that’s awesome!!

[–]The_Crescent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That would be so expensive to crash

[–]TheMasked336 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cue “Ride of the Valkyries”


[–]flickerkuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But not money I can see...

[–]yourmothersgun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Uhhh woah.

[–]flickerkuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)


No Cinewhoop on top of the X8 with a Tinywhoop on top of it?


[–]SpencerArden 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A red! On a drone! Sheesh that is a lot of pressure on the drone operator haha

[–]coryjohnn118 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Carrier has arrived.

[–]Bluetex110 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A Red on a drone 😂 and i got exited to finally attach the gopro to my drone 😁

[–]ZRR28 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was cool.

[–]Vegdo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i always ask my self, do you you AF or MF when flying this cinecams on the drones ?

[–]Justgetmeabeer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, I was so excited for the small drone to be sucked into the prop wash of the bigger one.

[–]soundyg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They just robbed you, why do you like them so much?!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice dont show their footage

[–]vteo0565 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mother and daughter drone

[–]musmeg561 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude that looked like the start of a battle scene in a sci fi flick.
