Drones are my passion

A new gimbal, the same old yard …

Flying my stock DJI F550 hexacopter, with a NAZA 2 FC, an H3B+ camera, recording at 1920 x 1280 x 60fps, supported by a brand new FY MiNi-3D 3 axis gimbal.  Nice.  And a very nice day to try it out on.  Beautiful. Inverting it is simple. Remove cam. Invert gimbal. Rotate roll 180 deg. Put cam back, right side up. Done. It adjusts to the new orientation on power up.

Yesterdays Adventure

May 17, 2015 Drones

For you nerds out there, was flying an F450, with e300 power system, Vector FC, and H3W camera.  I fat fingered the controls, panicked just a tad, but recovered during the sudden unexpected drop.  Never saw that tree until I looked at the video recording after the flight.  A couple feet more over, and I wouldn’t have ever found that quad, or the recording.

Over the Treetops

November 27, 2014 Drones

Flying in and over a friends backyard – only time I’ve flown anywhere else besides my own yard.  Was windy above the treetops.  Was fun.  You’ll see our dogs, us (some old folk), the house and yard, a pond, and some gorgeous shots of the treetops bending with the wind. Helpful Hint – View it in youtube to see it full size, and select HD mode to see it in high def.

Such a blue sky that day

Drone Video in August

August 27, 2014 Drones, Nature

Latest drone video of the place.  For HD click on Vimeo – and then you will get the HD presentation – simply much better that way. Taken this August.  Everything’s so green right now.  Lots of textures and shades.  Plus some pleasing reflections of the sky in the pond’s surface.

A flight through our backyard on a very good day

Summer of 2013 – God was in our backyard that day.  I caught it with my drone.  Added some music.  And a two step at the end of the flight, with my drone looking on, filming …
