Re: Cool Aerial Video of Block Island, RI

That is an awesome video!.. and pretty unnerving to think that it was shot from a private UAV...

It appears to have been shot with one of these;

Re: Cool Aerial Video of Block Island, RI

Nice but I had some bandwidth issues...it was jumping. I am curious about a trip to the island and will start a new thread on this.

Thanks,

Re: Cool Aerial Video of Block Island, RI

Thanks for sharing that. Block Island is such a beautiful place. Too many people in mid summer to really enjoy, but it's still one of my favorite spots.

Here is another video the same guys took at the lake where I sail and live. Lake Ray Hubbard.

Re: Cool Aerial Video of Block Island, RI

Very, very cool and (IMHO) somewhat creepy at the same time. Certainly underscores the fact that traditional expectations of privacy are an illusion long since gone. The Block is a neat place. I only wish the video had shown more of the interior of the island, which is rich with ponds and wildlife. Thanks for sharing.
