We built 15 ft. flying drone dinosaurs and flew them in front of the Hollywood sign. . Repost from @unistudios. . 👁🗨 If you worked on this project, please comment and tell everyone your role on the project (and any other musings). We look forward to replying to each of you. . ❗️SEE BELOW FOR PROJECT FUN FACTS❗️ . Stunt was performed in support of the opening of Jurassic World the Ride. . It took 4 months and over 100 test flights to build a structure that allowed the propellors and wings to work together #davinci . All Dino parts were built to be fully modular, detaching and reattaching with a system of powerful magnets and custom 3D printed sockets. . @flyhelo is a world class experiential marketing agency that put their faith into #la_drones to pull this off. Their leadership and support were second to none. . LAD lead pilot @averitas is crushing it on the mini quad for the Pteranodon POV. . LAD fabricator Matthew Finney @outlandercreations is an insane artist and sculptor. He sculpted and painted all Dino parts by hand. . LAD performed ALL phases of production. Art, fabrication, painting, design. Industrial, mechanical, electrical engineering. Ground and aerial cinematography. We had a total of 18 people on this project. . We would not have gotten a foot off the ground without the amazing and tireless engineering work by Devin Vollmer, Vignesh Mohanraj, and Deepak Premkumar, and flight tests by @perhaps_james and Aaron Wallechinsky. . Contact us to build your own robotic movie props, custom drones, and drone light shows. . #racingdrones#dinosaurs#freefly#jurassicworld#customdrones#flyingdinos#rcplanes#octosaurus#universalstudios#archeology#dronelightshow#jurassicworldtheride#dronestagram#dronelife#setlife#activation#universalstudios#hollywoodsign#instadrone#stuntlife
Motorsports has been good to @la_drones and L.A. Drones has been good to motorsports. . Over the past three years, LAD has helped 12 world renowned race tracks change their drone policies. . But one of our greatest accomplishments has come with producing consecutive #FerrariChallenge seasons (10 broadcasts), and a third on its way #circuitoftheamericas . Five drones in the air simultaneously, all outfitted with Computer Vision AI. Ground cameras, in car cameras, live commercial programming, live timing / graphics, all produced by L.A. Drones and their partners. . Yes, we are far more than “just a drone company” (don’t let the name fool ya). . LAD is revolutionizing the way the motorsports is being experienced, and will be integrating drones and new broadcast technologies into the world’s biggest races this year #foreshadow . Thank you to the partners, clients, and incredible staff that helped us make history. We’re just getting started. . Drop a comment below if you’ve worked on one of these projects with us so we can appreciate you again. . Edited by @ajslays Titles by @calebhurt Shots by @la_drones
Friday - 11 AM PST - a disturbing photo from the @la_drones offices in #Venice. The Hill and Woolsey Fires started spreading through Ventura and LA counties. Over 15k acres burned and 100k homes evacuated. 0% containment. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected. Be safe, follow evac orders.
Balboa Ice brought the beers, #LAD brought the Party Drones. Last February, #Carnivale was rocked by another @la_drones custom drone experience and light show. This music-driven aerial spectacle lit up five cities in seven days across Panama. The main act featured the “MEGAVALE” - the mind blowing, smoke spewing, laser blasting, hexacopter behemoth. Another amazing, and challenging show run powered by LAD rockstars - we salute you.
@la_drones superstar @stopitjon went on a solo mission to chug some Almond Milk out in the San Joaquin Valley with the @silk almond team. We were thrilled when he brought back this beautiful little edit of their farms, along with a painful amount of new milk-based knowledge. We’re proud to share, the entire #la_drones team has gone completely nuts over this milk.
If you're ever driving through the San Joaquin Valley and have some spare time, do yourself a favor and drive through any of the massive almond fields that riddle the valley. Believe us - you cannot miss the beautiful white foliage.
It was a truly meaningful experience. As Jorge and I began to prep our inspire 2 X5s, we could not help but stop to watch the sunrise pour its warm sunlight over the rolling hills and drench the massive fields of almond trees. An awe-inspiring feeling overwhelmed us. We had to get our bird in the air immediately!
We’re giving out #LADcaps. Forget the shoot, the press, the accolade. This is what makes us smile the most. Another cap, travels far far away, and and finds itself on the head of of a new #LADfam member @katiemarieyoga - rocking it hard. Got a LAD Cap on YOUR head out there, somewhere? Post an #LADcap photo @la_drones. We will send more, and post your photo. Need a cap to rock? Post a photo of your head @la_drones. We will get your info and send.
