RC Helicam was taking aerial photography of the 2011 aQuellé Midmar Mile with its mini helicopter and portable streaming system.

The RC Helicam operator takes photos and videos from above the water at the start, during the race and of the finish and then download the images to its website.

We do the Midmar Mile and other events throughout South Africa,” said Jaco Tredoux.

The remote control technology gives a great perspective of the race. The ground-based operator controls the helicopter and the images being taken with a backpack system and special glasses. The images can be viewed on terra firma with the special glasses. Use of the remote control technology have great possibilities in the open water swimming world.
