It has been a busy summer. I haven’t posted much here. But that does not mean I have not flown my drone nor posted any videos. Make sure to check out and subscribe to my YouTube Channel. I have been posting videos there almost every week even if I have not posted to this blog.
We took two vacations this summer. We enjoyed a Wildwood summer vacation on the Jersey Shore and spent another two weeks in Florida. It was great to have some time off. The best thing about the time off was that I had more time to fly my DJI Air 2s.
I created two new YouTube playlists. I created a Wildwood playlist and a Florida playlist. Many of these videos involve boats and I learned a few things about flying from a boat. I created another post on this site where I share 10 tips on flying a drone from a boat.
I am not going to do a separate post for every video as I have in the past as I am too far behind. But I wanted to share the list of videos I had posted on YouTube from our time in Wildwood. I will also create a separate post with a list from our Florida vacation. So here are the videos from Wildwood:
Watch the Tramcar Please
When you think about Wildwood, you cannot help but think about the tramcar. Walking down the boardwalk any summer afternoon or evening you will hear the classic “watch the tramcar please!” In this video, I captured the nostalgic tramcar as the sun set over the boardwalk. This video also gives a perspective of how massive the beach is.
Chasing Boats at Wildwood
While sitting on the beach, I spent some time chasing boats offshore in the Atlantic. One of the boats to pass by was the Silver Bullet Speed Boat and Dolphin Watching Tour. I was also able to capture a fishing boat and a luxury yacht.
Bike the Wildwood Boardwalk
This might have been my favorite video. But it was not a drone video. Instead, I attached my DJI Osmo Action Camera to the handlebars of my bike and filmed a hyper-lapse video with my son, Thomas, as we bike the full length of the boardwalk. Biking the boardwalk in the morning is a big part of the Wildwood experience.
There is a fireworks show every Friday night during the summer in Wildwood. How could I not capture the show with my drone? This video really shows off the lowlight capabilities of the Air 2s.
North Wildwood Boardwalk
This video was the simplest of them all. This video is one shot and takes you the length of the North Wildwood Boardwalk. It shows the walkers, runners, and bikers. My daughter, Abby, can be seen running at the end of the video. No, this was not dad spying on her.
Boats in the Bay at Wildwood
We rented a pontoon boat from Pier 47 Marina. It was not the fastest boat, but it gave me the opportunity to film some of the other fast boats in the bay. One of the best scenes in this video was when a person dived into the water at just the perfect time.
Spectacular Sunset at Keyport, NJ
Ok, this was not a video from our Wildwood summer vacation. It was taken shortly after we returned from Wildwood. I joined the Jersey Doners in Keyport, NJ near the Keyport Yacht Club, to capture an amazing sunset.
