April 1 - opening my camping lot.

Gates opened so I went to clean up the lot so I can bring the camper out. Playing with my new quadcopter while I took a break. wind was a little gusty so I stayed close to home.

go for it as they are a blast and you can get some really neat video/pics. get a system with the gps capability then you don't have to worry so much about control while flying, the flight controller does most of the work. (although the hardcore flyers don't consider it flying with the gps mode...)

Nice looking site. Most seasonal's I see around here don't provide anywhere near the room you guys have there.

Oh, and what kind of altitude do you get with that thing? Some of those shots remind me of the views I get out of the windows of some commercial flights I've been on.

Not real sure on the altitude as I do not have an on screen display with telemetry. I do have a little device that is supposed to read the gps data and it says I was 1000' up, but in messing with it I think it is a little generous. It is hard to tell since those cameras only have about a 3mm lens. radio range is around 2km for the controls and the video feed is similiar but it is more subject to interferance. battery lasts 10 mins with about 2 minutes for emergency.

as for lot size, we have some of the larger lots but then again our little pointe is the only area without power. (love my yamaha 3000 gen)
