Today’s video

Today we have a very cool video. It is a 4K drone motion time-lapse called “Annecy – Drone in motion”. The video was taken by Yannick Cerrutti with both a DJI Phantom 3 Pro and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro. the drone app Litchi was used with waypoints to create the drone motion timelapse. According to Yannick, it consists of 13,000 photos that were taken between October 2015 and December 2017. Well done!
