Ever since the DJI Phantom came out a few years ago, I got madly in love with aerial videography. Back then, you'd have to spend anywhere north of $1,300 to get a decent drone, not counting the GoPro

I'm jealous. I've been wanting a drone, but as  you mentioned a good one is quite expensive.  Have fun and post some more videos.

Another one.... Maiden flight at a public venue. The family wanted to tag along, so.   Still figuring out how to clean up the video. Lot's of moire and pixelation happening when watching it from You

Ohhhhh man.  Ok guys.  I'm warning you now.  DO NOT watch that last video.

This one.  Don't click it!  It's going to cost you money...i'm just warning you!

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously cool.  Darn you oj88.

That is pretty badass and with a 28 minute flight time. If I lived in a cool place like Colorado this would be a must have. 

Maybe you can fly yours for us at the next meetup.

Did my first evening flight last night at an altitude of 122 meters. From where I'm standing, the Phantom looked eerie in the night sky, almost UFO-like. I guess people who may have seen it were mystified. I know I would be.

 

So here it is:

The video has seen some post-processing using Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13. Filtering out the noise is a compromise, and I did so at the expense of losing some picture detail. You can see the original vs processed versions of the same sample clip below. Shows how bad the Phantom 3 Standard's camera is in low light.

Very cool and especially with night shots no less.

I think it is cheap for what it does but I cannot justify having one at that price (even if I was allowed). Has great commercial applications.  Sit at home and check on all the live stock in the back paddock without getting out of bed.

I'm with you. Bought mine about 4 years ago. Love it, till it crashes. But I rebuilt mine and fly as often as I can.

I recommend you check out these Podcasts. http://dronelawtoday.com  This is a great source of the legal changes going on.

These are all available on iTunes and Free.

Keep flying.

My brother still runs the family farm. Obviously, he would not need the best version of this, but the idea that he could use this for checking livestock, checking fence lines and monitoring crops is very interesting.

It would be cool if he could program it to run the fence line and come back.  I love how you can assign it to follow something.  I'm thinking  program it to follow my kids when they go to the neighbors house.  Then have it return.  Such a fun device.  I wonder if you could take it on a cruise ship and fly it over some glaciers or islands or something?
