Happy New Drift!

What better way to start a new year, than Drifting on into it! This event was a lot of fun, got to talk and hang out with a bunch of people, such as the illiminate crew, and others. I plan to spend more time at the next event which I presume will be #iHeartDRIFT around Valentines day. So keep an eye out, and until then, enjoy this "double feature".

Goal for next time, a more vlog style video, and going on a ride-along!

Special Thanks to Drift Central for Media Access, and the Drivers, for without you, this video wouldn't be possible!

Twisted Reality


Stumbled across what is the former VA building for the area. Place is deserted, which is to be expected as the new building is much bigger, and nicer. Funny thing is I've already flown it, and at night! (Check out video Black Knight vs Dark Night) to see the new building. Either way, this spot was alot of fun to fly and, and I look forward to coming back again. As for the ending... I may have pushed the battery too far.

Enjoy!

Live Broadcast of #MerryDRIFTMAS


A live broadcast from the #MerryDRIFTMAS Event by Drift Central, as presented by myself.

Notes: This is my first LIVE stream (and thus a learning experience). For some reason my USB Capture Card wasn't wanting to work (even though I tested it prior to the event), and thus I wasn't able to provide live aerial footage as planned, or hookup my Nikon to get you a zoomed and stable view (and the reason why I ended the stream when I did). Also, I was using a GPD Win as the PC, which has some limitations, but as you can see was feasible to run this stream, and I still had plenty of battery. I look forward to trying this again at HappyNewDRIFT!

Hopefully then I will figure out a way to run multiple cams at once

(Note to self, verify the USB Capture Card and other Peripherals are working before starting the stream.)

A little bit of everything (FPV Soup) - Maiden VLOG


Come hang out and enjoy some FPV Soup with me! Decided to try my hand at a more VLOG style format, instead of the regular flight videos, don't worry, still plenty of flight footage.

Come ride-along with me on an epic day, where I fly 4 different (and new) spots, such as a bridge, wind turbine, train cars & track, and finish it off the day at different spot than normal for "Bando Land".

All footage was shot with my GoPro Hero 6 at 4k 60fps. All stabilization was done in post (apologies for any distortion it may have caused).
