I went out with quadcopter to show a friend how it works and got some fun footage.  We had to find a good spot to take off then flew around.  Didn’t have much time to do justice to this delightful experience but did manage to capture some footage

Flying at Sunrise

A short post this morning after I went out to fly the drone before sunrise.  Got some good video footage which I will post later as time permits.

Upper Right is a frame shot from video while flying west up the draw.
Upper Left is what I call a “drone selfie”
Lower photo is sunrise at 150 ft altitude.

Went out again this morning and flew straight up almost 400 ft (that is FAA ceiling for quadcopters).

here are some shots from Drone

First Flying Video

Received my new DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter late December and have been learning to fly.  Since I never played video games, my eye-hand coordination leaves a bit to be desired.  Still it just needs practice, and after some, I ventured up into the Catalina Mountains to the Romero Pools to fly and film.

Quite a little challenge and learned a lot including, as you will see, on very important lesson in this video.  Hope you enjoy.
