    Another of my recent flights....Chimney Rock National Monument


    Chimney Rock National Historic Site located in Nebraska. It is one of the main landmarks that travelers used when heading west across the vast open plains.

    Video take from an X650 Quadcoptor using a GoPro2 camera. Flight was done via FPV (First Person View) from the parking lot at the edge of the hiking trail. Flight reached 3,00 out feet away from the take off point with a max altitude at 372 feet.

    Flying With Friends in Cherry Creek Start Park, CO. This was a great time over two days. I was able to meet Alex from Canada who has been following us for about a year. He was kind enough to reach out and asked where we would be as he wanted to catch us on the road and fly together. Well, he caught up to us and we got to fly! Alex builds his own quadcoptors from scratch, and also is a champion glider pilot.

    I also met a new friend, Steve, who was one of the members of the flying club their at Cherry Creek State Park, He had a Blade 350 quad that he buzzed around with. Nice little quad.

    All in all, hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it.

    David: My younger son sent me a link to a video done by Deploy Aerial Media of Hong Kong. I thought this would be of interest to you and to DBSTalk members.

    I would have taken the liberty of posting a comment to them, along with a link to your Badlands video on YouTube, but it requires that I first join vimeo.
