Picked up a Drone (DJI Phantom 2)

Here my first flight with a DJI Phantom 2 H3-3D and filmed using the new GoPro 4. It was such a blast and can’t wait to tomorrow with a full battery. The girls have cheer in Granite Falls but doubt I’ll bring it. It’s a bit loud.

Side note: if people think spying can be accomplished with a Phantom 2 then they haven’t heard the blade noise. Listen to the video … just not too loud LOL.

GoPro 4 Settings: 1080p @ 60fps and the rest all default settings

I live in a neighborhood and was worried about the close quarters. The DJI Phantom proved to be easy to fly and control. There is bit of initial setup yet some handy videos (below) made it easy. I had thoughts of publishing my own tutorial but why re-invent what’s already done.
