FAUX Drone

Talk about this new technology.

FAUX Drone

Postby sidd finch » Thu May 11, 2023 7:20 pm

One of my favorite places to record flowers and their bursts of color finally put up a "Drone Prohibited" sign much to my dismay. So I thought I would try to emulate the drone look with a super long monopod stick. Not really a drone but it was fun to record with it.

If someone had but up a 'Drone Prohibited' sign in my backyard I wouldn't be very happy. :hyst:

You're fake drone footage is better then my drone footage :-D

Most areas around here don't allow drones, plus the DC exclusion zone.

I just can't believe that you didn't use a real drone for that video.

Those pesky neighbors have just taken things too far.... :ha:

Same here. It is just not worth it to try and sneak around. We are close to a major airport and we live in the zone. Looks like it will get a workout when we go on vacation. No obstacles there.

I just can't believe that you didn't use a real drone for that video.


Thank you. One of the reasons I have been using the 360 camera and the super long monopod. If I used a quadcopter I only like to be 30 feet off the ground anyway and this gets close to that feeling for me. Plus being 360 I can always reframe and get a decent looking shot. I just look like a maroon walking around with the giant stick but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. :TU:

I have been using the selfie stick so much that I have not used my drone in almost six months. I just look like goofball walking around with the giant stick.

Oh well, I look like a goofball without a giant stick. No accessories needed. :)
