Well done Aerial MOB an impressive opening sequence for Dancing with the Stars. Seen by millions across America who won’t give a second thought to how it was made.

Obviously, Patrick is more the sequins and shimmy type around here so I can’t comment on the dancing.

What I can say though is that the single continuous shot could not have been flown by a manned helicopter.  The flight line down the steps and around the pole confirm that. Not only would the manned helicopter have blown the dancer’s hair dramatically but it would have hit the building.

With Part 107 waivers available to make flying happen in all sorts of places this Inspire has shown size does not matter.

It was undertaken with what might be described as a high ticket price prosumer drone. An Inspire with X5R camera. Rumour control says the Inspire 2 will be released in November, but the shouts are not so loud. More noise for the folding one and maybe the Wind any time now.

Once again well done Aerial MOB, I have a feeling your phone will be red hot with enquiries.
