Are you interested in how we captured some of the aerial driving…

The roads were unpaved and rough, so I spread a tripod out in the passenger seat footwell for the FPV monitor to prevent it from slamming around the car cabin. I used an Atomos Ninja Blade monitor/ProRes recorder; I also had Zeiss Cinemizer goggles with me, but I forgot the appropriate cables, so I had to use a monitor instead. I didn’t have a good way to mount the Lightbridge ground end, so I just stuck it in the center console between Ragnar and me (Ragnar Th. Sigurdsson was driving). This proved to work just fine. The only thing I had to remember to do was hold the RC controller up high whenever I was flying low so the signal wouldn’t have to penetrate through the entire front end of the car. I watched the signal indicator go from 03 to 80 just by lifting the controller up higher by one foot.

Here’s a short sample clip, shot with DJI Phantom 2, Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal, GoPro HERO 3+ Black, and Lightbridge:
