A remote controlled helicopter with a remote controlled video camera was shooting aerial footage of Burning Man for a documentary.
The high-tech electrical RC Heli belongs to Copter Kids, a small company that specializes in shooting aerial footage from Remote Controlled helicopters, which is much cheaper than using a real helicopter and allows close shots and fast motions that cannot be done with full-size helicopters. Their equipment is fully customized and electrically powered, with for very low-noise operation. Their Heli can fly for about 8 min on a Lithium battery. One person pilots the Heli, and another person controls the camera, which broadcasts real-time video to a monitor on the ground.
