The Design Goals of the Vulture

Straw Hat Sam, the creator of the Vulture, had a specific goal in mind for designing this drone – to make it capable of carrying the Sony RX02 camera without creating any Jello, while also being able to accommodate smaller cinema cameras. He achieved this by creating an anti-vibration mount that uses mechanical isolation, which allows for a mechanically solid design that can dampen vibrations to accommodate super-sensitive cameras. Another important feature of the Vulture is the quick-release camera system, which allows for the camera to be attached and removed quickly, making it convenient in certain environments.

Versatility and Multifunctionality

The Vulture’s design makes it versatile and multifunctional. It can be used not only for traditional mini quad FPV scenarios, but also for various cinematic filming applications. The optional prop guards, made of lightweight nylon tubing and polypropylene 3D prints, allow for tool-less installation and removal for the fastest workflow on set when switching between cameras. The smooth and bumper-like surface of the prop guards protects talent and property on set.

Key Takeaways

Its anti-vibration mount and quick-release camera system make it convenient and efficient for filming in different environments.
