Yes, Drone-Hiking is a thing. And my mission is to make it a REAL thing in Greater Seattle area! We are all extremely fortunate to live in a beautiful city that has amazing scenic hikes 30 minutes in any direction!
This meet up is for hikers who love: - Hiking to scenic lakes, mountains and trails - Love recording drone footage (optional)
What to expect? - Expect to be comfortable being filmed by a videography drone! - I will post these drone video on my youtube channel and will be happy to share them - Willing to follow WTA guidelines of hiking etiquettes. * Read WTA Drone Hiking Guidelines Here (http://www.wta.org/news/signpost/hiking-drone-tips-regulations)*
- Making new friends #SeattleFreezeBanned
Pre-requisites: - Owning a drone is NOT required. - If you plan to bring your drone with you, please have it FAA registered
I own a DJI Inspire 1 v2 professional drone with a 4K 12 Megapixel Camera Gimbal. I will allow one fellow hiker to use the secondary controller to control the camera while I focus on flying my drone at the hike summit.
Nice to haves: - DJI Phantom Series drone or similar - DJI Inspire drone or similar - GoPro or handheld gimbal
This meet up is NOT for: - Drone racing
NOTE: Every upcoming event is limited to the first 10 RSVPs as hiking & coordination in larger groups gets challenging. You will be put on a wait-list after first 10 RSVPs.
