Using a drone to capture footage of Tornados


#1

What’s up guys! So over the past year I have been working really hard to pursue my dream of being a videographer/filmmaker. I have made some decent progress, and have been fortunate enough to have been given some great opportunities.
Recently I invested in a DJI Phantom Advanced, the standard drone for middle-class videographers. It is not the best on the market, however it is a really dependable drone with a great camera.
My question to all of you reading this is; would you like to see weather (Supercell, tornado, dust storm etc.) footage from a drone’s prospective ? I know it’s risky, but I have not seen much professional looking drone footage of storms out there.

If you would like to follow me to see this kind of footage, or just to support a teenage kid chasing his dream, check out the links below and follow my social media for updates:

I have a DJi Phantom 2 Vision.

I have successfully captured straight line wind events, storm fronts and have tried a couple times during tornadic events. You have to be in the right place to be in position to fly without getting it destroyed by hail or knocked out of the sky by winds, or worse, dragged into a tornado. Be very very careful. A drone can really hurt someone if hits someone, especially if it’s more than 2kg.

IT is one of my goals to have footage of a tornado on the ground while my drone films it and will continue. The ones I have seen online seem to be from 7 miles away. Not what I wish to achieve.

I am an experienced drone pilot and will let you know when I have another one of those “lessons learned” moments. Safety is always paramount.
