LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Over the past year and a half, a UFO has taken Lubbock by storm.

In May 2012, a southeast Lubbock resident captured some flashing lights on video camera. This past weekend, fans at the Jones AT&T stadium wondered what was floating outside the stadium.

Today we have the answer.

"It's six electric motors that are all connected together with stabilization electronics running through them. They run off two batteries that are 14.8 volts each - so a little stronger than the battery in your car," said Kris Barton. He is the owner of Swing Wing Productions and the pilot of this mystery object.

"We built it about two years ago and we're constantly modifying it, trying to get it to work the way we want it and constantly making changes for whatever it is we're shooting or taking pictures of."

"Main locations are just right here around Texas. We started in Austin and just moved back to Lubbock. Golf courses are what we started out doing, and the majority of our work, but we do everything from construction to athletic facilities, which is where everyone probably saw us Saturday night," he said.

"We took pictures of the sold out stadium. We were actually hovering over the bubble, maybe a little further south then that, never actually going over the stadium."

And all of the UFO talk makes him smile.

"We saw a couple of Youtube clips people had taken thinking oh my gosh this is a UFO but it does have lights on it so we're able to see at night."

Kris shoots pictures and video using his multi-rotor and has been hired for many commercials and events. His work has taken him to 44 states in total and he doesn't want to stop anytime soon.

"People see it and they really can't comprehend what you can do from an aerial point of view. It's really a lot of fun to see peoples' reaction when they see this out flying.

"They say oh it's a nice toy and they see what we're able to produce and they say that's incredible," he said.

"Certain cameras I trigger by just a button on my remote. Other cameras I use an external intervalometer which triggers however fast I want it to. I can trigger every 3 seconds or up to 10 seconds, it depends on what I want to do."
