Quadcopter To The Face During Wedding Photoshoot

This could have ended a lot worse:

This was shot using a DJI phantom and a gopro camera. This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the groom on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and and the side of his head.

You can view the entire video which includes footage after the collision HERE.

Looks-Shopped-Tell-By-Pixelshahah wow, that would have been a pretty close fly-by.  I hope the photographer didn’t charge anything for the shoot.

Posted because of my love for quadcopters and drones, preferably weaponized.

Elaborate marketing scheme?  Real?  Shopped?  Can you tell by the pixels?

I think it’s real, I think the bride & groom are cool people and rolled with it, and the final video is pretty awesome (complete with a little nick visible on his right cheek in several of the scenes).

I want to see a drone cake. As soon as they go to cut the wedding cake, it flies away and lands on the table of Mr. Creosote where he eats it before they can get to him.
