Please check out latest Best Drone Flight Controllers 2017

If you plan to make a quadcopter for aerial photography and don’t know what what kinds of consideration are included. Now this post will share you The best flight controller for aerial photography quadcopter. You will get what you want.

Today, quadcopter have a vast use, it contains aerial photography, Surverying, Thermography, Logistics and Transport, Security, search and rescue, Agriculture etc. According to official data, aerial photography for at least 60 percent of quadcopter application area. Quadcopter configurations preferred for aerial photography, it can capture slow and sweeping shots when hovering in the sky.

The requirement of flight controller for Aerial photography

The most important things for good quality video and aerial photography are flying stable and reducing vibrations. The type of flight controller and camera gimbal are important.

In my previous post (Flight controller board comparison) is referred that there are tree flying styles of quadcopter, The cinema flying is good at aerial photography requires a flight controller which had a smooth and stable flight.

So if you build a quadcopter for Aerial photography, when you choose flight controller which must be Stabileze and Altitude hold flight modes, they will keep your quadcopter in current altitude, also can control your quadcopters with self-levels the roll and pitch, these highly difficult routine of Aerial photography will become more easily.

The flight controller listing are Cinema flying as blow, all of them are good at aerial photography.

Use GPS for Aerial photography quadcopter?

It is a good thing that flight controlls quadcopter with GPS which is required for high alt flights, return to home and position hold. But completely not necessary for flying or Aerial photography work. Do you think so?

In fact, your quadcopter preferences need to make adjustments for different requirements many times, Even you have the best flight controller for aerial photography.

So Keep on rocking with whatever it is dissatisfied with the results of Aerial photography. Keep the passion and the optimism alive.
