Did you know that ACPL’s Access Fort Wayne has a drone? This drone helicopter has a GoPro HD camera mounted on it and can film events in places that are not easily accessible by foot or vehicle! It runs on rechargeable batteries and can fly for up to 20 minutes on one charge.
We’ve had the camera for about a year; our first flights were in parks and we discovered kids love to chase it! It has been used to film our Rock the Plaza series and Fort4Fitness races. Access Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation are planning some aerial videos of parks facilities.
Conditions must be right to film — wind of 10 miles per hour and full sunlight is ideal. Below you can view the Dragon Boat races in downtown Fort Wayne as captured by our drone. You’ll find more drone videos on our YouTube channel. Where would you like to see our drone fly?
