Drones are becoming more and more popular in the skies over Ireland but when you get a combination of an amazing camera, a skilled pilot and an incredible location the results can be simply stunning!
That’s the case with filmmaker Alan Clarke who popped into Harvey Norman in Castlebar and picked up a new 3DR Solo drone. It’s a Smart Drone which uses sophisticated technology to make flying easier, alongside an intuitive videogame-style controller.
Then Alan attached his GoPro camera to the drone using the included rig and took it out for a tour of the top sights from all over Mayo. He travelled around Ashford Castle, Delphi Lodge, Bellmullet, Westport House and Achill Island and brought back this gorgeous footage.
The 3DR Solo has advanced features and smart technology which helps you set up epic shots like these, you can even set a point in space and the drone will circle it so you can get all the hero shots you need! You can even control it from a smartphone and stream video straight to your device from hundreds of feet away.
