This is a first test flight of the DJI S1000 at the University farm. The video was taken by Dr Guy William flying a DJI Phantom2 Vision+. The S1000 was flown by Darren Turner.
In August, we performed a test with an X8 flying wing and Pixhawk autopilot. We wanted to test a new bungee launch system and ran three machine vision cameras capturing multispectral information (each camera captured a different spectral wavelength). Some of the video footage was shot from a DJI Phantom2 Vision+ flown by Dr Guy Willians. The X8 was flown by Darren Turner.
