It's been four months since my last drone show reel and I've shot a lot and learnt a lot and I've had my aerial footage on the web, in documentaries and on television since then. So here are a few shots from my summer, all round Scotland and many shots of the beautiful Cairngorms

I am a qualified UAV Pilot and all CAA rules have been adhered too in the shooting of this film. I am close to people as they are in my control and are there to be filmed by me.

I stay away from roads and built up areas apart from the trains. The Steam train (normally an illegal shot) I had permission of The Strathspey Railway company and the drivers were aware and I had a chaperone from the company with me at all times to show me what I had permission to film. The funicular Railway, I had permission through Cairngorm Mountain Operations and people in shot are in my control again.

The legal limits for flight are 500m horizontally and 400ft vertically. I have my controller set to stop me flying outwith this. If I want a longer flight I wear black and hide in the middle of a shot which can allow me to fly 500m either side of me so I can do a 1000m flight if I need. Hope that helps as there have been a few questions from other drone pilots

Bennachie -  North East Scotland

You can climb to the top from various places with paths to the top.
Bennachie Centre by Kemnay = Maybe the hardest way up, but the most used.

Drone Footage from Bennachie



Callum Shanks

I think this was from Rowan Tree Car Park.
The path you see at the end is the way down to the Bennachie Centre.
It is by far the steepest way up, though it is the shortest.
The Hill Fort wall can be clearly seen on this video.
