About Nicholas

My name is Nicholas Foederer, I live in Daytona Beach Florida and have been into photography for over 10 years now. I mostly shoot sports and events. I have decided to take it to the sky with a remote operated drone (quad rotor). The drone is a DJI Phantom 2 and it has a flying time of 25min*. The drone equipped with a Zenmuse h3-2d gimbal with a GORPO Hero3+ which is capable of capturing HD or higher quality video and high resolution images as well. I see this technology as the next big thing in photography and video capturing. The range of the drone is up to .5 miles and a height of over 1000ft. I have a FPV setup so I can fly and view what the camera is seeing real time. This gives me the capability to capture much better shots quicker and will result in more quality footage for the end user. Thank you for checking the site out and if you need any info, or want to utilize my services please contact me through site, or at 386-383-3001 Thanks - Nicholas *at normal speeds and mild wind
