    Multi-Rotors!

    I have this Multi-rotor copter that I plan on making some videos with. The first one I had, I crashed up pretty good. The second one flew away but luckily, I was able to find it in a swamp pit at Balls Eddy. Broke the landing gear, all the props, 1 engine, and the GPS. Needless to say, just before the damn thing flew away I was able to get some nice aerial of the West Branch.

    I have my rig back together after spending a small fortune and I'm only missing a gimbal (controls the camera). I ordered one today. I can still strap a GoPro onto it and get decent footage. I think it would be pretty cool to get some aerial shots of some nice places in NJ tomorrow. Any ideas?

    You can always help the FBI look for bodies in the meadowlands?

    To look good is to fish good

    Careful of the Big Browns in the Mud Flats... They may mistake your drone for a meal.

    Hi,

    Here are a couple of pictures from the early days of radio control picture taking.

    You may want to get a BLADE Nano QX copter. It is a small copter I use to train. I can fly it in the office. The nice thing is that it has the same stabilizing technology as the big ones, so it is a good trainer.

    Jim

    Check out the surf action at Gunnison Beach. You might find a blitz going on.

    Re: Multi-Rotors!

    Hi Dennis,

    Be careful out there!!

    I was informed by National Park Service that if I wanted to continue flying my planes/drones over the mainstem of the Delaware that I needed a permit to continue or risk fines and loss of equipment!!

    I seriously thought they were joking when they told me that!!

    Jim

    PS: Still can't download pictures.

    Drones were banned form all NPS lands over a year ago

    Re: Multi-Rotors!

    Hi,

    I still can't upload pictures.

    You still need a permit to use a drone for "research" purposes on the mainstem.

    Perhaps that is why I can't post pictures. Dennis is preventing me from incriminating myself!!!!

    Stick with your Nikon and get one of these! Let's see them catch you to check your permit.

    Re: Multi-Rotors!

    It's been a while since I asked this question and since I asked, the drone world has become much larger.

    Sooooo.... How many of you are flying drones and recording your outdoor life? I use mine all the time!
