Well I took FatDash AF1, Sparky, to Playa Cameron to shoot some video and photos of the area. This was at the request of a friend that has a friend that owns property there and wanted some aerial pictures of the area. This gave me a chance to plan and shoot something specific with Sparky and then process the pictures and videos into something pleasant to view. I took a total of 180 still photographs. 2-180° panoramas consisting of 21 individual pictures per panorama. 1-wide angle consisting of 9 photos to create a 16:9 photo. 2-360° panoramas consisting of 46 individual pictures per panorama. All these pictures were stitched together using PTGui.

The video was a combination of 8 video clips for a total of 23 minutes and 53 seconds of raw footage. This was edited down to 4 minutes 6 seconds that was then uploaded to YouTube. I added free music from YouTube and rendered it at to HD 1024 at 60 frames per second.

Here is the video:

Here are the panoramas. You can move the picture with your mouse or if viewing on a smart phone turning the phone. View in full screen for best results.

And finally here are so stills that I took.
