Except at the very beginning and the end, the Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter that shot this 4K video was flying itself autonoumously on a pre-recorded "curved cable cam" route consisting of a handful of waypoints that it connected with a smooth, 3D spline curve. Doug just had to watch over it and operate the camera, which he might be able to do better if Yuneec had reversed the way the tilt joystick works. Its backwards from a pilot's intuition (Back should make the camera look up. and forward should make it look down). But the idea was to point the camera at the house pretty much all the time. This is raw video straight from the camera. There's no sound nor added titles.
