Huntington Beach Pier

Flew my drone 1/2 mile out in order to shoot the pier from the ocean side.

Now that is so amazing!

Were you worried about the drone dropping into the sea?

How did you frame the shot?

My family and I just visited California. We stopped in at the Santa Monica Pier for a day.

Beautiful shot! :)

Actually, I was worried as I hadn't flown it that far in the past. Obviously, if there is a problem (a bird attact -- it happens, a strong wind gust, battery failure, etc.) I couldn't hope to retrieve it. It was framed using the iPad connected to my controller.

That just boggles my mind. I am such a worry wort that I'd go crazy in that situation.

I think it's completely cool! But . . . man, that sounds stressful.

Are you posting other shots from your drone?

For going over water, does this float?

And if it doesn't float, can you attach a floating device to it to at least make it retrievable?

Doesn't float that I'm aware of, nor can you attach anything to it. It's just gone!
