40+mph winds blowing my drone backwards so I help it like a Osmo and walked down to the lake and filmed the waves


I upload the video this morning and went to work . I watched this edited version for the first time a few mins ago , and I gotta apologize for the glitchy , pixelated film you see . Filmed in 4K dumped down to 1080p for youtube but this looks terrible . sorry guys

Judging by those choppy waters the winds would have been flying the Spark, not you. Nice handheld video though. Very patriotic music/Kennedy speech in the background. Even got a flyover at the 4 minute mark. ;) Thanks Roy!
In time I am going to release a Fly over montage. I've captured with my Iphone

This is a teaser but have you ever seen anything like this ?

That montage should be a fun one to watch. No, I haven't seen it in person. Reminds me of the TV show "Axe Men" where the loggers would use helicopters to move logs from places that couldn't be accessed by vehicles.

It used to clear powerline right away . Those are bladed , they spin to cut down brush small tree ect.
It was really cool to watch but I wouldn't pilot that for a millon dollars.
