I just bought a DJI Phantom this week and took my first couple of flights around the neighbourhood with my GoPro Hero 3 Black attached to its undercarriage Unfortunately Holland is very windy, which made it hard to get smooth images right off the bat.
I also filmed a small session with Edwin Wieringh, Hans Hardonk and Roel Verhoeven on Amsterdam’s newest skatespot, the Wittedewithstraat Curb. Here I shot some extra footage using a Canon 5d MarkII and the GoPro Hero 2.
These were my first times going up with this new little camera helicopter, and while filming a church in Ransdorp the heavy wind took the Phantom right out of my sights, but luckily the ‘return to home function’ worked perfect.
It did give me a few moments of cold sweat though. I can’t wait to improve my flying skills, and start flying on some really hard to reach spots! My partner in crime Axel van Dijk has also just purchased the DJI Phantom, so expect much more fly edits to come soon. – Remy Cadier.
