Top Drone Pullbacks – Can YOU do this?

One of the greatest drone moves is the drone pullbacks or a dronie, where you pull back and climb with the drone. Imagine the skills needed to move smoothly backward while passing one or multiple narrow passages. In this video, I will show you some mind-blowing pullbacks, performed by one of the most skilled drone pilots I know.

 

 

I saw these moves the first time on Facebook and reached out and asked if I could show his skills to you guys. And luckily he said yes. The pilot is my youtube friend Marlon from Phuket in Thailand, he is a musician by occupation and has flown Phantom 4 standard for the past 8 months. Marlon picked up drone flying in 2015 with a Syma x5c-1 where he started to practice his precision skills.

Marlon has a super cool youtube channel Drone Maneuvers, where he posts all about different challenges that he has completed. If you like this kind of skills you should go and check out his channel. I will leave a link in the description below.

I’m totally blown away by how skilled Marlon is. Unfortunately, he is grounded right now due to new drone regulations in Thailand, where you have to have a license to fly. This can take up to 2 months to get it, and the penalty for breaking the law is quite tough by local standards.

Hi did mention, he is preparing for another drone challenge video where he will complete a Phantom pullback a whopping 500 meters under a local bridge from the shore to the end of the port. The will likely mean without obstacle avoidance and in ATTI mode, because of poor reception. Another reason to follow Drone Maneuvers on Youtube.

8 Drone Footage HACKS in 4 min

Tip 8: Don’t use auto mode, only use manual mode for the camera setting. Switch your drone into manual and fix your iso to 100 and set your white balance to the appropriate weather type.

Tip 7: Only use flat color profiles like D-Cinelike or D-log formats. This will preserve the maximum dynamic range in your footage. In other words, keep all the details. You can apply color correction or LUT’s in post-production. Don’t rely on the camera to make those decisions for you

Tip 6: Shoot in 4K if possible, even it’s not really not needed, but if this is the native camera resolution you will get the best possible quality. 4K offer many advantages + you can scale it down to 1080p in post-production. 4K you can crop without loss of quality to 1080p.

Tip 5: Movies are shoot 24fps with a few exceptions. Shoot with this 24 or 25 fps to generate a cinematic look. These framerate generates a decent amount of motion blur to generate that familiar look that is pleasant to the eye. Getting the right amount of motion blur requires the shutter speed to be kept at double the framerate.

Tip4: Think about your composition when shooting. Use the rule of 3rd to make your footage look more interesting. Obeying the rule of 3rd, your primary subject should be shifted to either sides or top/bottom. The rule of 3rd is not a law, but will definitely help the look of your footage.

Tip3: When recording, try to keep it to the 3S: Slow, Smooth and Simple. Keeping it simple, with only one direction without correction will often produce a more convincing result. If you are not happy with the result, repeat it again until you get it right. You can combine it with a soft gimbal tilt if you wanna go more advanced.

Tip2: The worst condition for filming in bright sunlight. This will make your shutter speed very fast, especially on drones with no aperture to control the amount of light entering the camera. High shutter speed does not only reduce the motion blur but could also make your footage look stuttering or jerky because even the slightest vibration or movement is captured by the camera. Use the sun to your advantage and keep it behind or on the side of the drone, and use it in your favor as a big light source from behind.

Tip1: The right lighting is so important for a great result. That’s why you should plan your shooting during the first and last hour of the day. This is by the professionals called the golden hour, because of the soft light and the long shadows.

Halloween Drone – A DIY Pumpkin Drone

With Halloween approaching very fast, we are doing a DIY pumpkin drone here at the channel.

 

 

Last week where we completed the Halloween Drone basic build. Today we are going to fire it up and configure the HobbyKing KK2.0 Flight controller and hopefully take on its maiden flight. If you did not watch last week’s episode you can find it here:

About the Hobbyking KK2.0 Flight controller (now Hobbyking KK2.1.5)
The KK2.0 is a fairly simple controller that lets you configure directly on the board with the 4 buttons below the LCD, with no need for laptops or tablets. This is good 16 USD controller, to learn the basic os DIY RC before moving into to more advanced stuff.

I will not spend a lot of time going through every setting of KK2.0 as there are many in-depth videos on Youtube explaining this. Like this one from eluminerRC with an easy to follow instruction how to do it.

 

 

DIY Pumpkin Drone setup:

There a few critical operations from the eluminerRC guide shown in the video
1: Calibration of the accelerometers.
2: ESC or Speed controller calibration
3: Check motor direction.
4: Check the motor response.
The goal of today’s Maiden flight is to make it hover, and possibly adjust to it does not drift too much. FC Outside. Remember this drone does not have any help from GPS to hold it’s position. Basically, any drift needs to be adjusted through the remote. You might also have to adjust a little bit on the PI settings on the KK2.0 controller to make it good. I ended up using the recommended PI settings from a guy called Dennis Baldwin, that has to build a quad with identical components.

 

 

We did not seem to have enough thrust for decent performance, so we had props to a bigger size 1045. We did not have to go for from a 3S lipo to a 4S to boost the performance, 3S seems to be enough for now.

With 1045 I’m happy with the base performance, we could mount the sound system. As a sound system, we are using a speaker that will take an SD card, and we have loaded the card with scary sounds. it’s a bit on the heavy side, with a weight almost equal to one battery.

Now it’s ready for the test flight. Stay tuned and make sure to hit that bell notification icon below, so you get notified when it’s online. Take care and see you on the next one
