    Eye to Eye with Ireland - FPV Sightseeing TBS Disco


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Andreas Ostermann and his friends traveled to Ireland last summer to capture the beauty of the island with remote-operated devices. Ostermann attached a GoPro Hero 3 camera to a quadcopter to capture these aerial views of the Cliffs of Moher, Cork, Dingle and Galway. He flew the device in first person view, which the hobbyist community calls FPV.

    “It is the closest thing to flying like a bird. But you have to be well aware of the flight envelope of your device as well as the limitations of the equipment you use,” said the German resident. “So you have to plan every flight very carefully and take care of the conditions surrounding you, so that you will not endanger any animals, people or your equipment.” During the shoot on the Cliffs of Moher, Ostermann says 55-mph gusts of wind were his primary concern.

    I took my Quadcopter along and got some decent footage of this beautiful island.
