This is the first test flight of the RED Epic on the SkyMotion Video Aerial Video Platform.
Notes: The landing gear does retract, but was left down for safety on this first test flight. The camera is NOT being controlled throughout the flight by an operator. In order to maximize flight time, as well as balance the camera, a custom battery pack was made for the RED.
The footage from the RED Epic was shot at 4K resolution, 120fps, 90 degree shutter, ISO 1600. The lens was a 24mm prime.
The footage from the RED was post-stabilized a bit, resulting in a 4.7% crop. This amount will become less as the pan stabilization settings on the gimbal were accidentally set too high during the test, and added a bit more vibration.
The system is handling the weight very well. We are very happy with the results, and will continue make improvements.
