A small sample of some of my RC Aerial Pics, most are old pics from years ago.


Most all of these pictures were taken with a RC airplane. I have been doing aerial photography since 2007.

The pics that are at the end of the thread are done with a multirotor.

Hey Dave!

Those are some of the best aerial pics I've seen.

I also noticed your setup is a Telemaster and a foamy... Are they FPV or just line-of sight?

Also checked out your website, great stuff.

As for the camera, what setup are you using? Servo triggered?

Hi (yarsmythejr) and Alex. Thank you Guys for the kind words.


I am using a Magpie AP for my aircraft

http://www.mountainmodels.com/index....c10e97da6127ea

A Canon A620 or Canon A570IS for a camera.

For shutter control I use a URBI from
http://www.blip.com.au/

It is a very easy and inexpensive set up that anyone can put together and use effectively.
If I can do it - anyone can.

I have video down link equipment but I usually do not use it because I mostly work alone. If I had a second person to work the camera with a separate radio and view the video down link then I would. I have used more complicated and bigger systems but now
I just keep it simple, and with a lot of practice I have just figured out where my plane needs to be for the shot and just take a lot of pictures.
