As I write this I am somewhere over the U.S. Yay for in-flight wireless! Over the past few months. I have had quite a bit of practice becoming “proficient” flying the DJI Phantom 2 to see what things look like from above. Being able to add a GoPro Hero4 Black to a PH2, along w/ Fatshark FPV flying is simply amazing to me. It’s one of those things I have dreamed about since i was a kid. My favorite things to video by far are remote areas and the untouched landscapes. I have been all over the NC inner-coastal areas…not the beaches that most people know about. The inner coastal areas are very sparsely populated…the kind of place where people still wave when they pass by in the car.
Here are some of the scenes that I captured, with a little Green Day thrown in as well.
My experience with flying around people has been one of curiosity. People who see you fly are very interested, and want to know all about it. So, the cool thing is that I have met people that I would have otherwise never met. I had a nice chat with one of the DOT crew members from the NC Ferry boat in the video. Along with another photographer for Yacht Shots, in Oriental, NC. He told me about another couple from area that is sailing all over the world, while taking the DJI quadcopter along for the journey. You should check out the videos. Some of them are simply stunning like this one from Iceland.
Thanks for watching!
