Landing Drones

How massive gusts make getting the gear back a challenge

There are some elite drone filmographers on our ship. Renan Ozturk, Chris Burkard, Taylor Rees, Ryan Hill, Jeff Kerby - they let drones fly around us, above us without a break. While flying them is hard enough, landing is an even bigger challenge.

The Kuril Islands are windy. Really windy. All of a sudden, a strong gust might take control of the drone.

So, here you see Renan and Taylor, shaken by the rolling of the boat, trying to get one of their drones safely home. You can see Taylor's relief at the end of the video.

The team lost drones on Onekotan the other day - but we will tell that in another story.
