The person controlling the DIJ Phantom 3 drone was Jaimen Hudson. “It just so happened that he was out at the time, and a few people let me know there were whales on the beach and it all just went from there,” Hudson said in an online interview. “They were really curious and came over to meet [Dave]… Just very inquisitive about him, I don’t think it was really that dangerous at all.” Hudson became quadriplegic following a motorbike accident, but the aspiring movie maker flies drone with his thumbs and shoulder movements.
