Very cool footage showing a large tree and climbers as they climb and orbiting the top. Unique perspective that gives non-climbers a sense of what it would be like to climb one of these giants. It also gives me am idea of what it would be like to use a drone to drop a line in a tree for rope access. Ideally a modified small little sling shot or pen gun would launch light weight fishing line with a 4 oz weight would work well. You could use the camera to aim and shoot the line over the branch of your choice and a specific height… also ensures you have enough climbing rope to make the initial ascent.
I am thinking of a smaller version of this with a servo release mechanism…
