Arpoador / Rio


Just another afternoon at Arpoador in Rio.

It is a great surf spot and many people hang out on the rocks to watch the sunset. A big applause when it sets down is not uncommon, but a bride and groom fully dressed surprised me... I've just learned that the "trash the dress" is a new trend, so the newly married go somewhere nice and rough for photoshooting. Their photographer actually asked me to do a shot, so I tryed a zoom-out-to-the-sunset at 1:20. Romantic, isnt it?

Interesting to see how people interact with the quad, smiling, waving, calling it and photgraphing it. Good to know they dont get disturbed or threatened by it. I still keep a good distance and avoid hovering over people, for safety. The police was nearby, came closer to take a look and also felt it was safe so they were cool with it.

Camera is a GoPro on a Jdrones gimbal carried by a x650 v4 frame controlled by a Naza FC. Some poststabilization on imovie.

You were flying FPV in the middle of a city with no regard for the people around you?
Incredibly wreckless, the cop was very smart to stop your retarded behavior.

This was a normal RC flight with the pilot standing directly behind the tricopter. The police officer was just asking to stop, no warning, no judging; not like you nastycop
