That turned out really good, Walker! Very cool to see from overhead and not at 100+ knots...

Great video. What kind of camera did you use? Go-Pro?

It was a GoPro 3 camera, mounted on a DJI Phantom quadcopter.

Thanks Walker. That will help me get through until 6/2. If it wasn't for Hughesnet's stupid download limits, I would just run it on a loop.

That is very cool. Great way to amuse yourself and give the rest of us a big dose of DIF.

Cool video. The Go Pros are pretty incredible. I'm working on building an array of Go Pros at work that will give us a 360 degree video. We plan to mount initially to our roadway mapping vehicle and helicopter. When the FAA approves UAV's for commercial use we'll be able to mount it to that as well.

Check out this new tech they're working on. Will make for some pretty cool sailing video when it's ready.

I don't care who you are, video footage like that is just bad-ass! Now, Walker, lets get that thing to work locating schools of 'poon and bones! greendog
