Since I'm a little bit of a drone-a-matic myself, and I enjoy flying around with drones, I propose to fly around/above the SUSE building, record some footage, and make a cool promo video out of it.

We could potentially use this footage (together with some recordings from inside the building taken by hand) as a promotion for the company and show others (via social media, etc.) how cool of a place SUSE and the Nürnberg office actually is.

As a teaser here is a YouTube video showing Nürnberg from above (not recorded by me!):

Personally, I can provide the following equipment:

  • DJI Mavic (+ DJI Googles) -> Easy to fly, great video footage
  • (FPV) Tiny Whoop (something like this) -> easy to fly, bad video quality
  • (FPV) Freestyle Mini Quad (hard to fly for newbies, a lot of fun, though)
  • (FPV) Freestyle Quad (5 inch, hard to fly for newbies, a lot of fun, though)
  • (FPV) Googles and monitor (if you want to watch live)

If anyone is interested and can provide additional equipment, that would be great (so I see something new for myself ;)).

This project is definitely open to anyone interested in drones. If you haven't flown a drone for yourself, and wanted to give it a shot, feel free to join ;).

      It's a bit aged project (X-Copter Studio) but someone might be interested in it in the context of this Hackweek idea.

      Disclaimer: I'm one of co-authors of the linked (school) project.

      I could provide a Fuji X-Pro2 with an optical stabilized lens for in-house recordings (limited to 4k 30fps). But you should check with legal first (concerning DSGVO and stuff).

      Cool idea, but please make sure you comply with the regulations published by DFS. They provide an app and useful decision tree: http://www.dfs.de/dfs_homepage/en/Drone%20flight/Rules%20and%20regulations/Decision%20tree/
