When designing the Black Armored Drone we envisioned it used in exotic locations, under pressure from brutal environment. Now, having multiple systems out there in the field, we start seeing them fly in some amazing locations. Seeing the real life performance of the product we are shipping live up to our visions from designing it is a wonderful experience.
Simon Sjörén took delivery of a system late last year and it went straight up on the mountains in Åre in the north of Sweden. We asked him to share some of the footage he's getting, and here is some short but sweet inspiration:
Job: Commercial for Goodyear, produced by TV Åre. Location: Helgesjön, near Åre Environment: -27°C Flight time: 10 min/flight Camera: Sony FS700 Pilot: Simon Sjörén Camera operator: Alexander Rydén No post processing, video straight out of camera
One thing concerning Simon has been how to get the gear up through the ski lifts. We offer Pelican cases (with gorgeous machine-cut custom foam) that are great for air-travel, in cars, on boats, in deserts, ... But Pelican cases are not easy to bring on ski lifts. After some brainstorming, a lot of just-do-it attitude and a late shift in the workshop, our Jonas Lindqvist could present a solution: ski-adaptors for Pelican cases!!
As far as we can tell, this is a world first from Intuitive Aerial! Simon tells us they work great. Let us know if this is something we should add to our growing list of innovative products for sale! :)
