Awesome shots Spark 317! Did you tie a string with a key to Sparky, LOL. Appreciate you taking the time to share. Happy Easter

Thank you.😊

No electrical experiments were performed.

I figured Ben Franklin and Nikola Tesla have done enough.😁

Wow, fantastic shots Spark 317
I wouldn't have had the guts to go up in that weather.. haha.
Thanks for sharing and really looking forward to the video
Cheers,
Ranjit

Thank you.😊

You'll have to come over to my house to watch the footage as I don't have a YouTube channel...yet.🤭

I slowed the footage down to 10% and you can see the lighting start to form in the cloud at one side, and then go sideways to the other side of town.

Sort of looked like the end of the movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, when they were up on Devil's Tower before the aliens revealed themselves from the clouds.

I parked the Spark less than 100' in the air, put it in Tripod mode to tilt the camera up past the horizon, and enjoyed the show on the tablet.

Well, hope you'll eventually find a way to share the video,, I think even in the best of times, my making a trip there is only a remote possibility.. haha.

And thanks for the tripod mode tip.... will try it for sure.

Cheers, and stay safe buddy

I hope you had the opportunity to try.

I got lucky as it was a slow moving storm with little wind.

I only brought the Spark down when it started to rain.
Tried it out but it was night time. Too grainy. Definitely will go for it again!

Great shots taken with lots of guts. No risk no gain . Keep it up
I used three batteries during the flight and it didn't rain, just a light show.

I was getting ready to load up battery number four but then the rain drops started to gather on my tablet and decided that was enough.

Stunning! Well done. I am trying to recall if you actually have a video channel ....Hmmmm... lots of great stills but.... Hmmmm! :D
Guess I'll have to watch a YouTube video on how to make a YouTube video. 😁

Those are incredible pictures WoW
Thank You. :)

It was the perfect storm for aerial photography.

No wind or rain for about 45 minutes, just lightning.
