Here come the drones!

Indoor aerial videography, anyone?  Sounds contradictory!  This is something I've been looking to try for awhile, and the release of the very interesting new DJI Spark mini multicopter gave me a good excuse to take the plunge.

I've hardly flown anything in the past 1/2 decade so I'm terribly rusty at the controls yet, but that will change with practice.  I've also quickly learned that in spite of the small size of this new multicopter, prop downwash is significant (even after removing the prop guards).  I will need to secure my vehicles to keep them from occasionally being nudged forward or back by the torrent of air.  An easy problem to fix!  I look forward to capturing & sharing some much nicer footage in the future, but I had to start somewhere.

  1. Love it. Love it. Love it! Just one question. Why is the NTSB not on the scene of the derailed train yet?
