After 8 months of paperwork, dealing with the FAA, National Park Service, Homeland Security and the Office of Interiors, this guy received clearance to fly a drone up and over the Gateway Arch.
Epic drone chase of the ride HELIX at Liseberg in Gothenburg, Sweden.
I bought this off a guy outside the bar last night and I can’t get it to take off. Do I need to program it?
I haven’t flown the drone lately so I got it out twice today to capture upcoming rain storms but both times it started to rain by the time I was ready to fly. So I waited until after the second rain and flew for a short while mostly to get some shots of the landscaping in the back yard.
I took it out after dusk when the landscape lights came on but it was mostly too dark to see on the video so I just shot some evening sky at the end of the video.
Here’s another drone video of the Gateway Arch during daylight hours. This one was shot during the Archgrounds renovation. These guys had to get special permission to fly around the Arch.
