PIT Training and Drone Flying at NWTC!

Helped out at a staff event recently where the NWTC Public Safety folks gave some people a wild ride in the Precision Immobilization Technique at our Universal Driving Facility. I was showing some fellow faculty members the finer points of drone operation, and we were able to get some pretty dynamic footage of the PIT training in action. I cut together a short video for all to enjoy!

Not too often I get the opportunity to film an actual car chase, then edit it into a sequence. Final Cut Pro X worked well for cutting and grading some of the footage shot in log profile.

Interesting iteration from DJI, the Mavic Air.

Great initial write up about the specs of the new device from DJI. Also interesting that they put the product directly in between the Spark and Mavic Pro. Are they over-iterating? Why put a whole new product out, granted with some neat tech updates, rather than put those updates into the existing products at their next version update?

Anyway, good article here…
