Flying Drones at Night in The Enchanted Forest

Flying Drones at Night in The Enchanted Forest

Flying drones in a forest during the day is a challenge, but flying at night takes it to a whole new level. There are many factors to consider, such as operating in tight and dark spaces, judging distances from trees and branches, and the wind speed above the tree canopy will be a lot different to that on the ground.

Airborne Lens was commissioned to film this years Enchanted Forest using drones, and so careful planning was required to ensure that the filming could be done safely and that the cameras would best capture the stunning visual display on the ground.

Edinburgh City Centre is approximately two miles to the south with a regular bus service available from the immediate area. The local area of Newhaven is served by bars, restaurants and local shops. A wider-range of retailers, restaurants and a multiplex cinema can be found at nearby Ocean Terminal. The David Lloyd Leisure Complex offers excellent sport facilities (and was once the practice courts for Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray).

Construction is currently underway on 234 new affordable homes, as part of the National Housing Trust initiative. The new development is led by the City of Edinburgh Council, Scottish Futures Trust and the Forth Ports Group and is being built by Hart Builders.

New aerial footage from Scottish digital media company Airborne Lens captures the scale of the site, as is a perfect way to showcase this prime waterfront location. An interactive 360-degree experience has also been produced, and takes viewers on an immersive tour from the air. Using a mouse, smart phone or tablet, it is possible to move around inside the fully customisable space and click on links to additional information and media. For a truly sensory experience, try it out in the RoundMe App with the new Virtual Reality headsets from the likes of Samsung, Oculus Rift, or even using Google Cardboard.
