I put the bird in the air tonight, hoping to catch an epic sunset. Sadly, the sunset fizzled out with barely any color. I still got a great aerial view of Ulm, MT. I really like the top down shot of the gas station. Now that the weather is better, expect more aerial shots…
The scaffolding is off the dome, and the light was outstanding tonight. New photos at the bottom of the project page.
Had the opportunity to fly the courthouse today. Beautiful blue skies and a shiny copper dome. New photos on the courthouse project page. Shot a few seconds of video while I was up there, too. Playing around with the Point of Interest flight option on the Mavic.
Like a lot of dogs, mine hates fireworks. So rather than drug him this 4th of July, I decided to head out into the sticks. A friend owns 10 acres in Washington, and offered it up as a place to camp. It was remote, wild, and devoid of people. Perfect for escaping fireworks.
I've been eyeballing drones for a couple of years now, and since DJI dropped the prices on their Phantom 3 Standard and Advanced models, I decided now was as good a time as any to pick one up.
