In recent years, the adoption of one-take FPV (first-person-view) drone videos for filmmaking and promotional purposes has seen an uptick. Pilots such as Jay Byrd Christensen and Johnny FPV have captured incredible, up-close-and-personal perspectives of bowling alleys and sports arenas using a tiny drone.
Zahnarzt Schumacher, a general dentist based in Germany, employed a skilled team of pilots to create an FPV video to showcase their business. DPReview contacted the office and found out it was House of Drones pilots Moritz Werffeli and Laurin Göllerused who used a NakeX HD BNF (bind and fly) cinewhoop drone that carries GoPro’s Hero (7, 8 and 9 at this time) cameras.
‘We are specialized it all kind[s] of FPV footage and live productions for sport[ing events] with FPV drones,’ Werfelli tells DPReview. Red Bull is one of their many clients. The NakeX was designed and built by the House of Drones team in Switzerland.
Clocking in at a little under one minute and thirty seconds, the video starts outside of the office, in the 6102 Malters block, flies through a van waiting outside the entrance and makes its way into the building. After a flight past reception, it maneuvers through several dental offices where you see both a child and two adults getting dental work done.
Drones are known for giving one a ‘bird’s-eye view.’ In this case, it feels like being a fly passing through a variety of spaces given the close proximity you get to the dental chairs, trays, and even the patients and employees. This is a perspective that is made possible with a small cinewhoop and skilled FPV pilot or, in this case, team.
All drones used by the House of Drones team can be found on their FPVFrame.ch website.
