Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas: Droning the River

in #drones10 months ago

I just finished this video yesterday: I had an idea to film the entire length of the Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas - it's a popular destination to float, drink and have a good time on the water.

It's also the shortest river in Texas so I wanted to start with this challenge since I'd love to do this for other rivers although a lot of them would take years and even decades to capture the length.

It proved to be a challenge as well for amount of days that I shot and batteries I had to use. So I only filmed about half of the river but I captured the most popular stretch: from the beginning of the tubing stretch (called Landa Falls right next to Wurstfest) all the way to the main hang out: the Tube Chute near the San Antonio Street Bridge.

I filmed with my DJI Mavic Air 2 drone and put the settings to 4K at 24 FPS (technically, 23.976).

If you don't feel like watching the entire video, skip to the long shot at 5:24. I think it's the best shot I've ever done with a drone - I kept it steady and filmed a few football fields worth of action as people tubed down the chute and hung out in the water.

Enjoy and prost from New Braunfels!

Hello to @jacobwayne
This is a great post ! I had to re-blog because I've spent some time on the Guadalupe river floating in an inner tube, drinking and absolutely having not a care in the world ! Such is the life in Texas, being young and free. 😎😆😎😆
You helped bring back some Fabolous memories. Thanks !

Glad you enjoyed it! It was a fun one to make and I love going out to the river to float. Not sure which one I like better cause the Guadalupe feels more private and in nature. The Comal is crystal clear and a good time with friends but tends to get crowded. Either way, you win though! I'm going to try to do a Part 2 video and film the rest of the Comal!

That would be great ! You should get on it for a summer trip with friends and family. (Me jealous 😖). LoL 😂😆

Yeah, definitely going to try this summer!
