Web Developer & Video Producer Jeff Cobbett needed just one bad experience with a vendor’s expensive aerial footage to convince him that he could do better. Much better. Jeff saw a quad chopper on the set of a film he was working on and decided that was the ticket. He purchased a Horizon Blade QX350 and outfitted it with a GoPro Hero3. A drone with a HD digital camera, it shoots sweeping mile-high video while Jeff controls it from the ground using a hand-held receiver. No helicopter, no expensive video equipment. Plus the quad chopper is battery operated so there’s no limit to how much video Jeff can shoot. It’s a great low-cost option for clients who want high-quality aerial video. Check out this clip of some of Jeff’s early test footage.
