Using a drone to capture both up and the down

Gradually getting to grips with using the drone and today the conditions were so good off the back of the Col de Mea

It was a big slackcountry tour off the back of the Col de Mea and down to the Vallon de Chambran, traversing up the valley and then a tough climb back up to where we were yesterday (see Ski Blog, 13th January)..

The learning curve of filming with the drone is very high but slowly getting there and understanding better, helped by now using an iPad Mini. Though I still need to work on getting the drone to follow people while they are skiing!

Filming in powder in the backcountry requires various techniques and getting to grips with what is the best process for setting it up, take off and landing like skis upside down and using those with a tupperware lid on top.
