Excellent Fly-Over Video of Three Tree Point
Found this quite by chance today when looking for Burien-area videos â€“ an amazingly cool fly-over video done by Steven G. Herbertson of flybyphotography.com.
It appears that Steven attaches cameras (both still and video) to his customized armada of radio controlled airplanes.
According to his website, he utilizes “custom designed, light weight, electric powered Remotely Controlled (RC) aircraft to capture a unique perspective on subjects. This allows an extremely safe, cost effective, means to fly closer than full scale aircraft, reducing haze and increasing clarity. The aircraft utilized are super-quiet, and can get into tight places many full-scale can’t even see from altitude. I’ve hand-launched from thick brush and landed in less than 20ft (many times simply hand-catch landings). Due to the lower overhead, I can pass the savings on to you, the customer. The flexibility and mobility of being able to “get the shot” in a short amount of time (no scheduling of full-scale planes, etc) may even allow for SAME DAY photo sessions (weather conditions permitting) at nearly one fifth the cost of full scale photography.”
Check out the Three Tree Point Fly-Over he shot in June:
(it’s a large .wmv file but definitely worth the download â€“ you may even see your own house!)
Steven’s rates start at $180 for a two-hour session.
