Spy in the sky

This morning I took my Phantom drone for another drive in our backyard, this time with the GoPro camera set to take a photograph every 10 seconds. Here is an example. (Click on the photo for a larger version.)

There was a little wind, but if I took my hands off the two joysticks on the controller, the drone would hover in the same place and at the same altitude, thanks to the GPS inside it. Cool.

Notice the ice in Lake Superior in the background. Hard to believe it's still around on Memorial Day weekend.


  1. VERY nifty!! You should take a picture with you in it controlling the drone.
