I wish we had the option to run studded tires here.   Not allowed on public roads.

I finally got this thing uploaded. Gig feel free to tie this in to your BFF channel. After numerous 2 hour attempts and crashes and a YT upgrade its done.

 

About the video. This is one of my favorite spots up Barnaby creek behind Lake Ellen on the way to White mountain. This is just north of the Colville Indian Reservation. There is a swamp in here that produces skunk cabbage in the spring. You guys have seen pictures of this area before. 
 

The flight itself was kind of foggy and drizzling. I had waited a bit before launching because it was slowly burning off. I saw plenty of Moose and Deer sign on the way in but I never saw anything FPV in the flight.

 

Enjoy!

One thing that strike me funny about the drone footage is how sparse the forest looks from the air. It looks thick from the ground. I think in most spots if something had been moving on the ground I would have spotted it. Even more likely if I was using googles.

That threshold is set by the software, so not a hardware limitation?

Yah, before I could fly about 1200 ft high. Technically you would only be limited by the radio telemetry or about 1.5 miles

1200 ft down to 350????  That's a helluva a restriction.

 

You need to break those chains and fly free....

That is great footage!

 

You are right that it looks shockingly sparse and open from above.

Nice video Norse!  Beautiful country too. Do you think you could pick up a trackway in the snow with that?

 

Now you have me wanting one. Do you mind my asking what video camera is attached to it? It takes gorgeous videos.

Well I dipped a few times because I thought I had seen some tracks. I guess I would need to test it.

 

Its a DJI Phantom 4 Falcon edition. So it’s one unit.

That's like a professional video cam drone my man after doing a little research.

 

Nice on you!

Were you flying at 350 ft over the trees?  I noticed when you brought it back in that you looked almost like a speck.  Assuming just a tad bit bigger for a Sasquatch, it would still be hard to make out unless it moved.

 

That is not a healthy forest...  Sad.  Drought?

At times. The ceiling limit is added to the take off elevation.

 

What your seeing I think is Western Larch. Only evergreen to lose its needles in fall.
