Drone training for expedition members

Updated: Mar 16

Ollie Hartas of Hartas Productions – sports videography – very generously flew to the UK from his home in Sweden recently to spend a day training the expedition members in flight and operation of the Mavic Pro drone that will be used on this years’ expedition.




The drone will provide additional input to each of the expedition projects as well as aerial video of the expedition activities and the stunning scenery of the high arctic landscape. “Flying the drone is so intuitive and it is so precisely controllable, with high definition video & still imagery, that it clearly will allow us to add significantly to our research”. Commented expedition leader Steve Staley.
