With the Redbull illume 2023 Image Quest about to open submissions next month I've had a few crew who have asked how I go about some of my Fliteboard / Skydio 2+ solo shoots

Combing back through the last 18 months or so of footage that will be eligible and competition worthy - the scenic locations I have foiled on my Fliteboard in WA during COVID border closures are some of the best in the world

Since my family lives in Denmark and I was down there for Easter I had plans to re-visit the famous Elephant Rocks for this novelty session

As the 'dronie' skill is probably my signature go-to shot because it's easy to implement with Beacon only flights - I decided to do a raw drone flight with audio from my Instamic Pro+ and narrate what's involved in framing a cool shot

Unfortunately I got skunked on 3 consecutive early morning sunrise sessions over the long weekend by the fickle weather - resulting in overcast, flat lighting and garbage exposure, but I thought people will still get some info out of this flight

Settings - 4k60p 1/120th no ND filter (too low light, but still over exposure with the glare grrr!)

Any queries shoot me a DM @paularity_ on Instagram or check out all my Reels!

Great stuff! Not to be confused with the other, well-known _Anal Rocks... 😉
