Jason and I took a day trip down to beautiful Santa Barbara for a film/photo shoot for the Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club last week. The club wanted some aerial photos of their 11 tennis courts, 2 pools, and giant outdoor performance center.
We brought a GoPro Hero 3+, Canon 5D Mark III, Tarot 650 Octocopter with Tarot Gimbal, Tarot 810 Hexacopter with Zenmuse Gimba, and a SkyPirate Whirlwind Doridworx Skyjib 8 Light with SkyPirate Gimbal.
The shoot started out a little rough because the monitor was having some technical difficulties. We figured out that the RCA to BNC adapter had become corroded from exposure to salty ocean air. A quick trip to Radio Shack did the trick and we began flying.
The club members that were playing tennis while we flew above them were in awe at the copters. It turned into quite the spectacle.
We were able to get some really beautiful aerial shots of the club.
