My birthday was last week and the lovely lady got me perhaps the coolest birthday gift ever, a DJI Phantom remote control quadcopter. WTF is a DJI Phantom quadcopter you ask? See the image below.
The unit is a very small four propeller remote control helicopter with GPS function. The copter comes with a GoPro camera mount so you can shoot video or still images from high above, like the shot of my house below.
Here is my first aerial photo of a golf course, River Oaks hole #12.
I learned some things today doing the golf shot above:
More quadcopter photos soon. First though, I need to learn how to fly the damn thing. I especially need to work on the emergency landing procedure!
