The drones are alright

I recently collaborated with photographer Jonty Renner and did a drone flyover of the Hutt City Council chambers construction site while they were installing 22 tonne prefabricated concrete walls. We were using the new DGI Phantom 2 which Jonty recently picked up. The great thing was that he had a monitor which I could see what the camera saw and could direct Jonty who was piloting the drone. I think that is defenitely the way to go. I could tell when we had the shots I wanted so did not have to waste flight time duplicating shots. A passerby named harold stopped and took some photos of us with his iPhone. I asked him to send me a copy. Here are his shots:
