Tax time headache?

Floriade as you’ve never seen it before. The hexacopter eye view

By johnboy 19 September 2011 24

Before Floriade opened to the public this Monday morning a crack Riot team of myself, our tame musician, and hexacopter pilot AP_OZ got up rather earlier than is usual for most of us and (by prior arrangement) set the magnificent machine to videoing Commonwealth Park in all of its Floriade spring glory.

Want to see what the patterns in those flowerbeds are? Here’s your chance.

For more information on the hexacopter and to book it for your own video purposes feel free to contact .

Many thanks to the Floriade team for accommodating us.

Great shot…you can fly over the top of floriade in a hot air balloon on any day (weather permitting) and see this first hand. 30 people are booked are in to fly this Friday. Just try either of the two local companies to get a ‘rare’ look at all the patterns etc.

Personally I reckon its the only way to view Floriade. you might just catch me in the sky this weekend 🙂

Hi all,

Thanks for all the positive feedback.

Please keep the questions coming… happy to answer what I can.



I nearly had a heart attack last night when i saw how much the MikroKopter costs – nearly 6K! The site you listed seems to be more with my price range!

In Floriade’s early days anyone could go visit at night and there were special lights all over the place, it gave a completely different experience to going through the day and it was magic. No Floriade has been as good since then IMO – though am going today so maybe this one will be different.

Great work. Will need to revisit once some more blooms come out?
