Description: Between 2018 and 2020 I attempted to bring this long-held dream of mine to film a rock skipping on water, in slow mo, at the same speed as the rock. I wanted to long before FPV drones existed, so I always wondered how I would do it. Then after building my own drone (thanks Johnny FPV for your early advice, and Chad Nowak for helping me build a Reverb for it) I realised I could make it happen. It was way more difficult than I anticipated. My wife started throwing initially, but after three shoots at three different locations, we switched to my brother and tried two other locations. I ended up sending two different drones under water five times, and each time it ended that day's shoot, forcing us to drive two hours back home, where I put the drone out in the sun for half a day so it had a chance to fly another day. Thankfully, the DryDrone product that Chad Nowak put on the Reverb saved it (although I later killed it in a saltwater incident), and nailpolish on the electronics of an older Alien saved that drone twice. I finally found this spot that's in the video as it had perfectly still water, and a channel that faced the extinct volcano of Mt Warning. Unfortunately only on this day shown, the mountain became almost invisible due to smoke haze from the terrible Australian bushfires - all other days it was dark blue/purple and reflected beautifully on the water. Hope you enjoy!
