Light painting at night with a Drone

One can also use modern technology, to conjure with light something on the Christmas sky! Ascending Technologies has a drone with LEDs programmed, that it performs a precise dance in the air, while taken with long exposure pictures and videos. And this light painting in the Night with a Drone has some merit, As the following clip shows.

The Drone light Painting Video is world’s first drone light painting project of that quality. For this purpose a high-tech drone mounted with a LED was controlled by the Flight planning software AscTec Navigator. After some testing all the light painting flights could be performed quite quickly and fully automated.

Due to the excellent flight characteristics of the AscTec Falcon 8 it was possible to fly such complex lines through predefined waypoints as precise and to fly those flight paths several times with such accuracy.
