    Drone flyover of my marina. You can see the guy controlling it from the deck at the start. Its right over my boat at 1:14 and 2:55. This is what low tide looks like around here.

    +1 on the long docks... That must take forever to load the boat for a trip.

    I walk that pier 3 to 4 times a day and I am not even a live aboard. I am always working on something on the boat.

    Is it an optical illusion, or is the drone really that far out, its a nice vid, and, pretty quaint marina, but, I am not sure I would be too comfortable sending my $1K+ drone out that far above water :)

    I was thinking the same thing; the range looked pretty impressive. In terms of losing signal- they have a GPS and return "home" when they go out of range and/or battery goes low. I have been looking at a DJI, which seems to be best in breed for average hobby guy.

    OP - What set do you have on the drone? DJI?

    Looking at the transmitter I am guessing it's a DJI phantom, not sure if it's the 2 with the gimbal camera or not, but the video quality is great!!. I have a parrot AR drone that I am going to try using this season for some boating vids.

    Google 3dRobotics Iris+ if you're looking for a nice quadcopter (I refuse to call them drones.) I haven't looked at DJI's stuff in a long time so they may have some of these features as well now, but the Iris has a follow me option, really nice mission planning, fully automated flights from takeoff thru landing, etc...

    It wasn't my drone. I don't have one. A guest of the house at the marina that day brought it with him.
