DJI Phantom

Spencer Estabrooks, an indie filmmaker was kind enough to loan me his DJI Phantom quadrotor for a week. I helped him setup his gimbal unit to steady his GoPro for aerial filming. So today I did some adjustments and managed to get the seventh channel to control the pitch of the gimbal. Here is my first attempt at flying a quadrotor.

Yes, it came down uncontrolled, then I flew it back and then realized that the SD card I have can only store 7-8 minutes of flight, so I did not get the return flight on film. I will fly again tomorrow and film that flight.

Well a lot of first's today. First quadrotor flight, first video edit...
