Capturing your best pictures from your favorite holiday tour is a challenging task especially if you want to fly a drone from your boat to do so. These following top tips on how to use a drone for aerial filming at sea from a moving boat helps you out.
- Fly it on Suitable Climate
UAVs or drones also have specifications on what climate is favorable for flying the drones. This rule gets more important especially when filming by a drone on a moving boat.
- For the Launch
Before anything search for a good stable and flat platform on your boat to launch the drone or UAV. It is possible to drift or side – slip but gets steady once the GPS location is locked.
- Elevate to safety
Before all other rules remember to elevate the drone enough so that it does not get into ship railings, sails, guy wires or worst – hits somebody’s head or eye. Make sure your boat does not move and hit the drone that is locked GPS home position.
- Waves & Swells
When the boat moves along the tides it lifts and lowers and you cannot even see it. This looks as if the drone is lifting up / down in altitude though it is stable so be aware of such waves and swells.
- Keep Distance
Other ferries or boats may not like the drone hovering over their boats. Hence, it is decent and respectful and shows drone manners to keep the UAV at an acceptable distance from other ships/ yachts boats, etc.
