Martha’s Vineyard Aerial Photography

So, with what has seemed like a never-ending winter here in New England, I decided a few weekends ago to get out of town for some island time. As it happens, the closest and easiest place to go is Martha’s Vineyard. Took along the Phantom II to get some stock photography. Managed to get a couple of great flights in – one at sunrise, the other mid-day. Here are a few of my favorites.

Recent Shoots At Mixed-Use Developments Around Boston

Busy, busy times around ViewPoint Aviation these days, which is a great thing.

We’ve been donning our hard hats and doing some drone flying around large, mixed-use developments that are currently under construction. As always, it’s been fun and has produced some staggering images. I’ll share a few. Image

Adventures With The DJI Phantom

So….. Agreed to do a promotional video yesterday, based on the recent Jeff Bezos created hubbub. Overall, I think he did more for the UAS/Drone industry in the 60 Minutes segment than maybe has been done thus far, especially with many of the negative stories highlighted in the media.

While I’m waiting for the folks to finish what is a very complex edit, I’ll share a few stills from yesterday. First and foremost, this is the first time I’ve flown the Phantom with an external load. I had absolutely no idea what to expect, and to make matters worse, was landing on a “pad” that was about 6 inches from a pillar and a grouping of plants. The Phantom was still awesome with the external load, but with any speed, the box beneath spins, creating some yaw.

More pics and video on this soon.
