Drone coverage at Greater Boston

Ed Chuk

Greater Boston, WGBH's evening news program, produced a recent story about how global warming may affect maple sugar production. The producer wanted aerial coverage so DP  Howard Powell captured the material with our lightweight 3DR Solo drone.  With it's gimbal mounted 4k capable GoPro camera Howard, who is UAS certified, was able to quickly get in the air, capture the needed shots, and return to the studio without a lengthy setup and teardown of complicated equipment.  The footage intercut perfectly into the ground story, showing the value of having multiple tools in your toolbox.
