Distant Storms

We had some awesome clouds over the St. Louis area on Saturday.  Rain storms rolled through off and on all day.  I piloted the drone up for a view of the approaching rain.

We were hit with a fairly steady downpour about a half hour after this flight.  You can see how good the video stabilization is when you notice the prop guards, hence the drone,  moving around quite a bit in the breeze and yet it still has a pretty steady picture.

  1. Hey Jonco, do you see the video you are taping in real time as you are shooting it? Or is it done on the blind and you review it later?

    • It connects to your smartphone by a WiFi connection so you so you can see exactly what’s being shot by the camera. Sometimes the sun is so bright that it’s a little hard to see though. I have a little cardboard-type shield that helps cut down the glare a bit.
