Taking a 360° panorama in the air!

I took my first 360° panorama from my quadcopter! We can see Pégomas (a small town), the sunset and the park where I’m doing flight tests.

It’s the result of 25 images stitched together with Autopano.

The camera used is a GoPro Hero 3 Black shooting at 12 megapixels.

The images have been taken at different orientations: the GoPro was shooting every second while the drone was performing a slow rotation around the yaw axis (i.e. horizontally). The GoPro was tilted up and down by controlling the gimbal orientation around the pitch axis.
