Might as well pump…

I really need to do this more often.

Getting to one of my “local” pump tracks and wiping myself out for an hour or two sis such good exercise.

It also means I get to dress in skinny jeans and wear my POC lid.

Honestly 75% of that video (not the bit with me in the car obviously) was filmed with my DJI Spark drone.  I’m pleased with how it came out and how I got some lucky shots and angles completely by accident.  For instance if you look at the sequence at 1:55 in, this was only set up to capture 1 pass, but the 3 passes on all 3 lines was such a bonus!

Any way hope you like this – if you did please leave a comment on the video, give it a thumbs up and please subscribe!

Sparks will fly

If you are a follower of my blog, facebook or instagram you will know I like to take photos, and my Gopro usually accompanies me on my trips too. Well it was only a matter of time before I got a flying camera wasn’t it!

I’m not made of money so the entry level Spark from DJI has been on my watch list for a while and I finally saw a great deal and went for it.

I was also on my way to Snowdonia and the Elan Valley with my mate and his van for the weekend so it was an opportunity to good to miss.

Day 1 I spent most of the batteries figuring out what to do and didn’t get much footage. Day 2 I felt I got a lot more efficient and managed the day with juice to spare.

I wasn’t quite brave enough to fly it out over the reservoirs in the Elan Valley or let it get too far from me in the mountains as I hadn’t quite worked out the “homing” settings.

What do you think of the results of my first drone edit?

I want to mix it up with GoPro footage in the future and think I’m going to have to invest in some decent video editing software sooner or later…
