Short float with a new toy.

Privacy keeps MDC from using game cams on public land, I don't think they will be using drones. Maybe the need for drones will override the perceived need for privacy and laws will change.  I have read that shooting down a drone is same violation as shooting down a 747 or a chopper, max of 20 years in jail.

I like that guy! Thanks for the link. 

I think I'll try to keep from fishing with my drone. It would be a blast but I'm afraid I'd crash it into the water. Mine's not as powerful as his Mavic but it was only about a third of the expense too. 

Dude makes good videos.

Pretty cool video. A buddy of mine said his guide was using one to scout for rolling tarpon in the Key's  a couple weeks ago. Sent the drone ahead to look before they poled over there.

Still haven't figured out how I feel about that. But I can guarantee you that I will send mine up at least once at the beach to see where the troughs are in a couple of weeks. Not spotting fish but spotting the places they are most likely to be. Probably no different really.

Very very cool video !      However, I think all drones should be programed to play Ride of the Valkyries if they come within some specified distance of another person.   :)

 

Now I'm trying to figure out how to add a speaker to mine.

he said he was on his fourth of the season so it can be an expensive technique. I think if you fly them near water you are going to lose a few

At a grand each I think I would do a better job of keeping it dry. 

I’ve seen a bunch of reports of them crashing into water but haven’t seen a single one where it couldn’t have been avoided.
