While attending the 2014 International VR Panoramic Photography Conference in Las Vegas, the 360Heros and Aerial Technology International team found time for an interesting side adventure. At 3:30AM on Friday, May 30th Mike and Stephen (ATI) flew an S800 drone with a 360Heros mount down the very center of the ‘Vegas strip.
This flight allowed them to capture Las Vegas from a perspective few have ever experienced before. The resulting footage and still shots yielded 360 degree panoramic views as well as a tinyplanet presentation of the Las Vegas strip in all of its illuminated glory.
As if Las Vegas wasn’t already impressive enough on foot, these images suggest that Vegas via drone is even more awe-inspiring.
Thanks to some expert piloting from ATI, the copter and our camera gear flew safely over the ‘Vegas strip’s natural divider. This footage affords viewers the opportunity to experience the lights and action of this exciting town directly from their computer or mobile device.
This flight marks the latest spherical video adventure from the 360Heros team. Stay tuned for more updates and interactive videos from 360Heros!
