Shooting aerial video of rally cars in Barbados for the Discovery Channel

Above Barbados are licensed & insured aerial video & photography specialists. Utilising remote-controlled quadcopters / multi-rotor UAVs / drones.

Above Barbados were hired by the Discovery Channel to film aerial drone footage for the 'Daily Planet' show. The segment covered the Mayers' brothers rallying in Barbados, teaching the host how to handbrake turn.

The aerial action took place at Vaucluse Raceway, St Thomas over an afternoon of shooting various angles - from high establishing shots, close following front and side views along with capturing various aspects of the handbrake turn attempts.

We used the Inspire 1 Pro drone carrying both the X3 and X5 cameras, dual operated to ensure we recorded every angle required. Using a combination of manual flying and pre-programmed routes depending on the shot criteria.
