2014 aerial footage I had shot that is used in this video about Port of Stockton by Full Frame Productions. The fish eye shots are not mine. I have a non fish eye lens on my aerial craft. My new quad-copter doesn't have that jello effect. Watch for the aerial shots of the Stockton Port water tower, train yard, oil tankers, warehouse and cranes.

Aerials of Noob Hill - What Is There To See On Nob Hill In San Francisco?
Nob Hill comes to life every December with various activities from the Annual Tree-lighting ceremony in Huntington Park held by the Nob Hill Association, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, to the amazing Gingerbread House at the Fairmont San Francisco, dancing at the Top Of The Mark in the InterContinental Mark Hopkins, or awesome drinks and dinners at the Big4 Restaurant in the Scarlet Huntington. The new SFMasonic is also the place to go for awesome music in an eclectic setting that mixes history, with cool urban chic in one of the world's most inviting settings. Nob Hill is a sweet place to come hang out and play like the Big 4 did in the old times, just better! This video was made by Beto Lopez, an aspiring filmmaker and drone-video pioneer, after he was contacted to film the night lights of Nob Hill by Greg Galanos, of Nob Hill Now, a non-profit dedicated to provided community access to entertainment at the SF Masonic on Nob Hill. With assistance from the Nob Hill Association, Grace Cathedral and many of our local hotels, Beto shot hours and hours of footage using various techniques including aerials with small RC quad-copter and ground-level sequences with roller skates, all aerials were flown under 400 feet average 250 feet and under. Our thanks to all that participated.

Aerial video in Yosemite before the ban winter 2013 DJI Phantom
November and December 02 2013 I was in Yosemite on a very quit days. There was drought and I was there on a weekday and hardly anyone in the park and no one really seen me fly until I was at Mirror lake flying up to half dome. One shot you can see a ranger drive by and I know he saw me. I wanted to get the water falls but because of the drought both months I went there was no falls. In November my memory card snapped when I was inserting it into the drive so I lost the footage when I flew from Mirror Lake to the top of Half Dome. When I went back in December my FPV goggles cable got loose so half way of the day I finished the rest of the day with no FPV for video signal. So when I made my second attempt to get the top of half dome from the dried up Mirror lake I had no FPV and I could not tell if I was high enough. As you can see at the end of the video I was only 75% up near the top of half dome. So I had planned to go back this spring to do one more attempt with my new upgrades and new Phantom 2 set up and custom lens. Well by the time I had made plans to go I find out recently about our flying devices are banned. So this video is not posted as originally planned but is all I can show since we can't fly anymore. https://vimeo.com/95320485

I have spent many months and long hours practicing my flying before knowing I'm ready for flying at big events like this. I have so many hours of footage that I
have flown over many cities and from coast to coast that I''m still editing. Including weddings, dance events, sports and car commercials content for Ford
motors. Subscribe to be ready to see more of my flying videos that I will soon be posting. You can also see my aerial photos on my instagram. Contact me on
my website that I still need to update for hiring me to film for your projects or events.

08/23-24-25/13 Fiesta Movement 4th mission/ Adult Space Camp adventure highlights/ DJI Phantom FPV

Thank you to Ford Motors, Fiesta Movement and Space Camp USA for allowing me to have 100% creative freedom to make this video based on my experience. I
drove my 2014 Ford Fiesta provided by Ford Motors from San Francisco to Huntsville Space Camp. I didn't know there was an adult Space Camp until Ford
offered the opportunity for my mission for adventure month. It has been a dream of mine to go to Space Camp ever since I first learned about it in the 80s after
the movie was made based on it. Hopefully this video will inspire other adults who had dreamed as a kid to go to take the opportunity to experience what I have
just did. Also thank you Space Camp for allowing me and trusting me to fly my DJI Phantom quadcopter GoPro over your rockets with 100% unlimited access.
This video proves with creative freedom of my abilities as a one man crew filmmaker. Hopefully one day to make bigger projects with a crew so imagine that. I
will have more photos posted from this trip on my instagram page http://www.instagram.com/mooncricketfilms and
http://www.fiestamovement.com/agents/mooncricketfilms

Update 08/15/13 New gimbal and has now been added to my quadcopter. Here is the latest video now nice and smooth.
