    Re: Hover Camera

    It took almost a month to get the Hover Camera out of China, but finally received the camera yesterday. First aerial selfie images taken with the Hover Camera below and one shot taken of the Hover Camera in action. The 13 MP jpegs are heavily compressed and there is currently no raw option. Video at default 1080 is stabilized, but not the best. 4K video is better, but not stabilized. Props emit a loud high pitched whine when hovering. I'll take it out soon to one of the gorges and see how it performs shooting landscapes from an aerial perspective.

    Hi K-H. I need to get out with the Passport and do some more aerial shots. The last two firmware upgrades have greatly improved image quality and stability. Here are some samples from other users

    Re: Hover Camera

    Just a few test shots from my deck to get the kinks out of HoverCam before taking it out in the wild. Only put it up about 6 to 20 ft for these shots and had some problems with wind when I tried to go higher.
