Drone Photography: See What This Toy Quadcopter Can Do

Camille Goudeseune shows off how he turns low quality videos taken by a cheap toy helicopter into amazing high-resolution panoramic photographs. Goudeseune turns the video collected by a $45 quadcopter into hundreds of still images that he digitally cleans and stitches together to form a single, stunning aerial panorama. Some of the locations he has captured include botanic gardens, historic downtown Urbana, various cityscapes, and the Beckman Institute quad with the new ECE building construction site. He also uses his flying drones to help researchers quickly identify problem areas in agricultural fields and even hopes to assist cowboys in quickly assessing the health of their cattle. Goudeseune is a Computer Systems Analyst at the Beckman Institute's Illinois Simulator Lab at the University of Illinois and an avid radio-controlled aircraft enthusiast.
