20140517-IMG_389820140517-IMG_3904This is one of those drone helicopters that have become very popular recently. This model is one of the best out there. It is the “Phantom 2” & has video capabilities. It costs around $1300. With the optional viewing package (you can view on your smart phone in real time what the drone is looking at) & the cost of the “Go Pro”,your looking at about $2000 plus!
I’ve seriously considered buying one but to be honest I think it would be a waste of money for me. I’m a wildlife photographer & the noise coming off of the blades would scare away any wildlife! Plus the fact that I would almost always be operating it over water. Which means I would only have to crash it once & EVERYTHING would be fried!
Still a very interesting proposition!
