The previous post focused on some video captured during the flights of a couple of DJI Phantom Quadcopters around the campus of Robert Gordon University. This post includes a few images selected from a flickr set captured during a class with our 1st year computing students. One of the quadcopters was setup to capture video, the other to capture time-lapse images, one every 30th of a second.
The image below is looking East with the Aberdeen Business School, RGU Sport, the Faculty of Health & Social Care and finally Riverside East with the nine story Library Tower standing tall in the background (roughly six minutes of a walk away). One should of also point out that the river Dee is to be seen on the right.
Looking West in the image below one can see the Round and Square towers, as well as the Central Services & Scott Sutherland Buildings. Further east of course is Grays School of Art, but isn’t visible in the frame.
If you look closely in the image below you just may spot the second Quadcopter taking off from within the middle of a circle of students!
In the image below one can just barely see the roof of the Grays School of Art and a fairly good view of the Scott Sutherland Building in the foreground next door to the Central Services Building.
The flights took place right next to the Scott Sutherland Building as seen in the map below.
