Flight Club: Drones and the Dawn of Personal Aerial Imaging

Today, Lynda.com released a documentary featuring Aerial Photography Flight Club (Mark Johnson, Barry Blanchard, Russell Preston Brown, Aaron Grimes, Stacy Weskerna Garlington, Romeo Durscher, and me). The documentary is about a few folks in the SF Bay Area who discovered aerial imaging through quadcopters as part of the first wave using RTF (and modified) quadcopters a few years ago. Don't worry—It is not an origin story about getting in the air using RC aircraft; model aircraft enthusiasts, filmmakers, and the more broad maker community have been doing that for decades.

You can watch the whole documentary on Lynda.com. The "preview" actually plays the entire documentary—no active Lynda.com subscription is necessary to view:
