Sept 27 Meetup - RICOH THETA 360° Integration in Products, Photosphere Navigation, and 360° Video on Drones!



Drone filming and image shooting are now from this year forbidden in Sweden :disappointed_relieved:


Oh wow, really? Were there bad incidents that caused this? Or is it about privacy concerns? Hopefully they don’t outlaw fishing poles and picture taking! :wink:

Drones are prohibited in Sweden
Box dragon and Zeppelins on string are still allowed
fishing poles above 10 meter are difficult to handle :theta_s:


this box dragon easy lift half a kilo and goes up 500 meter


Just a quick followup. I had a great time attending. Final winners announced here.

It was really inspiring, specific to drones and both to filmmaking. I would really love to try and do some film work. If I had the time!


Just got this newest info from the Flying Robot International Film Festival…
