Drone video from the weekend

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to catch some snowmobiles out on the lakes, but didn't catch any when I had it up in the air. I did flyover a group of Ice Fishermen on Spectacle Pond.

Great job John! Did you order your Phantom 4????

 

No, I'll stick with the Phantom 3 for now. I was hoping the 4 would have a better camera, but it doesn't. I'd really like the Inspire 1 Pro, but don't have an extra $4500 laying around to spend on a drone. Wait a second, I could sell my sleds to cover the cost since they haven't moved this winter :dunno:

You only live once, might as well live it broke and enjoy yourself.

Phantom 3 has multiple models correct ?

Yes, I have the Phantom 3 Advanced. Best bang for the buck in my opinion. Although the price of the pro has come down in price recently, too.

I agree until they make a better camera I will stick with the P3.

I had an Aries X10. No were as easy to fly as the Phantom 3 series. The built in GPS almost makes the Phantoms foolproof.

I would love to see a small zoom on one.

Nice video. Does the drone have zoom capabilities so it can keep its distance?

No there isn't any zoom capabilities.

 

Here's a video from a couple of days ago.

I was able to set a personal best for distance tonight at 9619' when I flew all the way in to the Village of Island Pond. Here's a short video of the drone flying through the village.

Just what is going on in Island Pond where they need 6 churches for 900 people?

Good question. I really can't answer it though as I'm not all that religious. I know that the french Canadians are very religious, since we are so close to Quebec I'm sure quite a few of the original settlers were from PQ.

Here's a link to an article on what I consider to be a cult like church. You can always pick them out in town by the way they dress. http://www.wcax.com/story/10734093/the-island-pond-raid-25-years-later-part-1

I thought I posted this quick clip of the fresh snow from yesterday morning already, but don't see it here. For some reason it's felt more like winter the last couple of days than it has all year.

Nice video . It's unfortunate to see the ski areas had such a short season as well despite making snow.

Can you fly at night?  Thinking an overhead/ side view of a fireworks show would be really cool
