I took the MP out last night for the local firework display and also took my new Tasman DR-05 sound recorder to see if what the quality of it was like. I took off about 800 meters away from the display and had the sound recorder resting on my bag pointing towards the display and flew about 400m away from the fireworks.
The display lasted about 25 minutes and managed to capture 22 minutes of it before the having to land due to it starting to rain. I was gutted I missed the finale as that’s when they set of the big boy’s. I had to ditch the last few minutes of video as the low battery beep was sounding and the sound recorder picked it all up.
All in all I’m impressed with the quality of the sound and think it adds a little something to the what would be silent drone video. Only thing though it was a right pain in the arse timing the bangs with the video but I think it came out OK. I have edited it down to 6 minuets as 20 odd minuets is far to long for a video.
