Frank Kocevar, the former owner of Historic Seligman Sundries in Seligman, Arizona, posted this clever video featuring a few signs along Route 66 in Arizona and a unique vantage point, courtesy of a drone.
The segment featuring a dreamcatcher at Meteor City Trading Post is particularly impressive.
I asked Kocevar what equipment he used for the video shoot. He replied:
A DJI Phantom 4 pro plus. I upgraded from a n antique DJI 2. The 4 Pro has a 4K camera with 3 gimbles for stabilization. I think that flying it is as much fun as taking the photos. 4.7 mile range and speeds of almost 50 mph. The regulations are becoming restrictive because there is that 10% of dangerous and irresponsible operators. Common sense, respect and responsibility are a requirement for safe operation.
You can buy the drone straight from the company here.
Drones are providing new views of Route 66 never before seen, unless you were a bird or a very good helicopter pilot.
