[Stanage Edge, Aerial View]
A short clip of Stanage Edge from last winter shot from a mini helicopter.

Can you pick out the routes?

Hi UKC. Thanks for posting my Video. I took this by chance. I was working in Matlock photographing a solar panel installation. It had snowed the night before so getting to the shoot was difficult to say the least. It had been the best part of 15 years since I last climbed at Stanage but it was so close I thought I would go for a walk and remember the good time I spent there. When I saw the Edge covered in snow as it was I just had to get my small GoPrp equipped Multi rotor camera platform out.

The resulting video was what had been posted. It shows all the classic lines from a totally new perspective so one more use of my flying camera platforms. Photographing routes for guides, videoing climbers on crux moves etc, etc.

So who wants photographing then?

A trial of after effects and the stabilize footage effect would make it so much slicker :) Admittedly you lose a little bit having to crop the edges but it makes a world of difference having completely smooth footage.

In reply to Fraser: Aye Up Fraser. They aint cheap! from 1800 for a decent one, up to over 40K depends what you want to lift. I have them that can carry up to Canon 550D and am building one to carry a Canon 5D but they aint 1800!

Love it - would be even better if you took the beats out/used an ambient mix.

Aye Up Kemics.

The little MR I used did not have a camera gimbal just a go pro stuck on with Velcro . I usually use this little one for pre main flight checked and to trap video or more often stills for survey work. I had done a job in the morning in Matlock and had not recharged the batts for the biguns... Grr The little one was all I had. I could spend a load of time in post but its kind of raw footage on a raw day.. Anyhow I here what you are saying. I just aint had the time to do to much with it.

Very nice vid, interesting to see the crag from a (slightly) different view point.
