Greater City Providence

Updated: Video: Providence Night Aerial

There’s no information to go with this video on YouTube, but apparently it is a camera strapped to a model airplane. Pretty cool!


Update: I got an email from Nicholas Lin who created this video. He provided a link to a video shot with a better camera and some info on his process:

The plane is flown birds eye view. I have a camera on the plane that records as well as sends live video to a set of video goggles that I wear to fly. It’s amazing to be able to see Providence from that perspective. I live on the East Side of Providence and love the city!

  • I actually was the one who filmed that short clip. Here’s another one that I took from the same spot.

    If you look on the page there are other aerial videos on the links.
    Providence looks great from that point of view.

  • I was surprised to find it up on this web page. I had a friend tell me that it was posted up here. I’m live on the East Side of Providence and have always wanted to get an aerial of the city. I like the open area there. I wish they could put some grass over there.

    The plane was flown birds eye view. There is a camera on the nose of the plane that sends me video transmission to a set of video goggles. A GoPro was used to film the first one and a GoPro 2 was used to film the link I have posted on my previous post.

    Glad you enjoyed it.
