MRP #047 | Petr and Erick Won The 2015 Drone Expo and Film Festival in Nantes, France | Interview with Petr Hejl | FPV Optimal Battery Position | Turning GPS Off When Flying Indoors | Issue With The Inspire’s Waypoints

This week we had some big news… Last year when Petr and I shot footage for an Italian documentary on international food up in Boston, we got some footage of harvesting cranberry bogs.  Petr submitted that footage for consideration for the 2015 Drone Expo and Film Festival in Nantes, France (www.drone-festival.com) and we WON for the best film in the Nature Documentary category.  Our of over 40 finalists, our film was chosen.  Petr did an awesome job with the editing and as pilot in command. This goes to show that you never know what might come from any project you are shooting.  See the video below.

Petr came on the show with me to talk about how this award came about and his trip to France to accept it.
