So you need more than 500m (1640ft) of height for that one drone shot…but the DJI doesn’t let you?!
Well there is no other way than to go and climb the nearest crane, is there?
The man behind this stunt was a well known YouTuber and daredevil James Kingston.
At 05:07am, on Tuesday he decided to climb up the crane in Southampton, UK.
After he reached the top, along with constant looking around at the people on the streets and the security guard on the construction site he sat down to admire the view for a moment.
Then he released and flew his Mavic Pro (at 11 minutes into the video), safely landed it after some while on the building at the bottom of the crane, and then he carefully climbed down.
Just when you would think that everything went smoothly, there was that sound.
Police sirens went off.
Yes they confronted him, but they turned out to be “cool” about it.
Did James do this because he needed that extra height or just because he felt like climbing, we can only guess.
We are pretty sure we would get that tingling/nauseated feeling in our stomach if we climbed that high.
It’s just strange we are all so cool when viewing the footage taken with our drones…
