    Beautiful St. Augustine, Florida from the Sky


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JasonH2112 used a 'drone camera' to capture the sights of St. Augustine, Florida from the sky.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    This is Part 1 of a series of videos depicting beautiful St. Augustine, Florida, shot in February of 2014. A DJI F550, with the following equipment was used: Hitec Aurora 9 CH Tx and 9 Ch Optima receiver, DJI iOSD Mini, Naza-M v2 with GPS, DJI Video downlink (AVL58), with 7" Screen, Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal, Tiger Motors 2216-11 900 KV, with Tiger carbon props. A GoPro Hero3 Black Edition was used.


    All of this equipment was purchased from multirotorheli.ca in Canada. During flight the F550 was mostly in ATTI mode, however GPS mode was used occasionally to hone in on certain locations.


    The scenes at the outset (as can be seen by the trees) were shot in 35-40 km/h winds, gusting off the Atlantic, easily illustrating the stability of this platform and the Zenmuse gimbal. Post editing was done in Final Cut Pro X. Special thanks to Pedro for his guidance and expertise as Director of Photography. For additional videos, please visit www.northernaerial.ca
