Serengeti Lions filmed with Micro-copters

Serengeti Lions filmed with Micro-copters – National Geographic Magazine via the Verge.

Lions sunning themselves on kopje looking over the Serengeti Plains; seeing a herd of wildebeest from a bird’s-eye view. Those aren’t things you can just walk up to and shoot. But with a micro-copter and lions habituated to the sound of the electric rotors, you’ll be able to hover 15 feet in the air and actually do that dream wide-angle shot of lions on top of the rocks with the plains in the background. At least that’s the hope and the whole idea of sinking an incredible amount of time and development into using the micro-copter camera in Africa—pushing the envelope of photo technology to make photographs in ways that have never been seen before.

  1. The MikroKopter’s homepage (http://www.mikrokopter.com/ucwiki/en/MikroKopter) has a very impressive video detailing the craft’s capabilities and performance (which is equally impressive). Video shot from the air @ 6:30.

  2. Never hold a cat in one hand, while trying to launch a Quadcopter with the other!
