Vacation @ Hokkaido – Day 3 onwards

Internet access at Club Med was bad and I basically could not get any connection after day 3. Anyway, snowfall was too little for us to continue to learn skiing at the basic level. So we have to move on to Club 2 to continue our lesson at the professional ski slope. We learned how […]

The electronics are open to the elements and there are no proper cooling system. Some people may argue that the down-wash of the quadcopter is more than enough to cool the […]

Had the opportunity to use my DJI Phantom to film inside the domes of the Gardens by the bay. It was really a very awesome place to fly, but it is also at the same time very difficult to fly as there is no assistant from the GPS system and the space is confined. I […]

Getting the 7th Channel of the DJI Phantom controller to work……

Today I had an eventful day. After another test flight with the GoPro set to narrow view, I still could see the Phantom coming into the frame during flight, and that irritates me real bad. So I decided to go home and see how I can get the camera to tilt. Did lots of research […]

DJI Phantom + Zenmuse H3-2D + GoPro Hero 3 black

This holiday, I finally had the chance to explore aerial photography. This is like a beginner’s setup. Learning the technical knowledge is the easy part, because there are lots of materials already available in the internet. Learning how to fly and to pilot the craft effectively is the most difficult part. It will take a […]

Canon Lion City Cup 2013

Once again this year I will like to thank Canon for the opportunity to shoot at the Canon Lion City Cup again. This year our U15 and U16 teams did not do as well as last year, but I think they have put in their best. The teams from Overseas proved to be stronger and […]
