Cool, now you can spy your neighbors :P
Is this a drone with built in camera or did you use your own??
Thanks everyone. The copter comes with the camera and gimbal already attached. If you got the Pro version, it would be able to shoot in 4k. The Standard and Advanced go as high as 2.7k which is fine with me. All three models shoot stills at 12mp.
The good news for me is that this drone pretty much flies by itself. In that video of mine, I used 'auto takeoff' and then 'autoland'. Of course, I want to get practice at being able to take off and land manually but this thing is just so stable, it's amazing. It also has modes like 'course lock' so that the copter flies a set course past an object while you rotate it and the camera to keep the object in the frame as you do the fly by. It has a 'follow me' mode and a 'point of interest' mode where you can select an object and have the copter circle it while keeping the camera turned into the center of the circle the whole time.
I highly recommend checking out some of the videos on YouTube to see just what is possible with these drones today.
