    Drone Photography

    Thought I would start a thread for some drone footage and pics.
    I bought a drone because I thought it would come in handy for numerous things and not just be a big boy toy.
    I wasn't wrong. I love having one.

    Got a wee mavic pro that is very portable. I recently carried it on a Thar hunt and didn't even notice the weight of it.
    Have a few pics of deer, Thar and chamois but won't post them as I am sure the GPS is embedded in them

    Anyway just some random pics I have used it for and like. Scenery around home. Name:  screen_0f6838b3abf56b1d_1519631525000.jpeg

    Take a screen shot of your animal photos and post those instead, then there'll be no risk of sharing GPS data.

    Using drone to check LR targets and a duck camp on the riverbed.

    Obviously fly up to the target to see fall of shot. Would work out to 3+km so pretty handy. If I have a good spot I leave the drone close to the target turned on and just check the screen after each shot.

    If we used the drone you likely wouldn't have shot your Bull.

    I didn't need a headlight as we had yours and a full moon. Mine was just down the creek in the truck if I needed it anyway.

    I even packed half your meat out ya miserable bum

    Haven't looked for a while but I would wait for the pro 2
    It is supposed to be a lot better but that's just the rumour.

    Mine with all the gizmos and spare battery was around $1350

    Ha! A drone huh? No surprise really.... reminds me of those words our ol' mate Leonardo once said:

    "For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return."
