In August 2013 we spent a month in Vanuatu shooting aerial images for the Vanuatu tourism office. It was an incredible trip in so many ways – we spent most of our time up in Santo on Aore and Ratua islands. Apart from the aerial shooting a big part of our trip was validating our systems in tropical conditions, this is an area where many have been struggling with high temperatures and humidity – through careful consideration of our system and payloads and with the use of detailed live telemetry we were able to manage our equipment very successfully. Our travel kit included 2 octocopters, 4 cameras, backup electronics, 2 charging stations, 20 lipoy batteries, laptop, hard drives, spares, tools. Total weight around 60KG.
