This could be fun. I am looking for interesting U.A.V. (Drone) video taken over Burnaby Metrotown. A good start is this mix of daytime - dusk - early evening coverage I found on YouTube. It was posted on the FLYIN PHANTOM YouTube account in January of 2015.
The excited film maker also posted a photo of his new gear.
He used a DJI Phantom 2 U.A.V., that he purchased for less
than $800, and mated it with a GoPro 4 camera. A good combo!
As I find other Burnaby Metrotown U.A.V. video I will add SCREENSHOTS and LINKS here. I am particularly keen to see U.A.V. video of major construction sites and the Skytrain stations in the Metrotown corridor. I will share any video of quality that I find.
Screen capture - U.A.V. is looking straight down Kingsway.
The Sovereign, which hosts "The Element" Hotel, currently
dominates Metrotown. It is Burnaby's tallest structure.
U.A.V. Recently Made Local News
A few may remember when a U.A.V. operated above Richmond, made the local NEWS. In April of 2014 the local affiliate of CTV NEWS did a story on a drone video that had been web-published on YOUTUBE. The U.A.V. operator skillfully captured a steady continuous shot of a passenger aircraft landing at Vancouver's airport (YVR), and the report mixed official outrage with dire predictions of a U.A.V. bringing down an big aircraft. If they haven't done so yet, YVR will eventually install disrupters around their property that will disable any hobbyists who get too close with U.A.V.s.
