Drone Practice & Possible Albino Redwood (urban)

Recommended Posts

Last October, I bought an extra used camera for a wedding, and recently listed it on Craigslist. A guy offered his DJI Spark Drone, with 1080 video, which is ample for now. I'm surprised how stable the unit can fly.  I'm a complete newb to controls, and did a practice run by an urban coast redwood tree. And it looks like the tree may possibly have some albino foliage. I'll go back next spring and see how pale the new foliage growth looks. One guy considered an albino tree expert, saw the video and replied that the foliage is albino. Anyway, here's a sample I shared today on Youtube.

That's amazingly relaxing to watch and listen to.  I nearly nodded off (in a good way)!

Are there regulations in the States, like the UK, regarding the use of Drones for commercial purposes? We have to be licensed or registered with (I think) the Civil aviation authority.

Plenty of rules. I'm still learning. Distances from airports, certain forests off limits, etc..  For some forests, I'm planning a few discreet videos for my own files. But done away from people.
