Aerial Photography - Darwin City

Subject:  Aerial Photography
Photographer: Auki Henry
Location: Darwin, NT, Australia
Date: November 2013

One afternoon I decided that I wanted to see if I could push the phantom quadcopter up past the tall evolution apartments in Darwin city... Answer 'Yes' that's evolution in the foreground.

I've been using the very affordable ready-to-fly quad for a little while now and have been pleased with the combination of small portable platform combined with the compact form factor of the GoPro Hero3 Black mounted on it.  Flight time is on the short side but still very workable and who can complain for under $1000!

Composition of these shots is via radio link FPV to a 7 inch monitor, otherwise it would just be wild estimation as to where it was pointing.  The phantom is so small that I actually lost visual contact with it at this height and could only see that it was there from the video link streaming back to me.

Camera: GoPro HD Hero3
Platform: DJI Phantom Quadcopter
