    I am heading out to visit my ailing father next week and he asked me to bring the drone, very excited to see it (really, I can't make this up).

    I will be in the Winder, GA area and was wondering where one might go to get some good video? I planned on buzzing UGA and the stadium, but other than that I am looking for waterfalls, that kind of stuff.

    Any flyers with experience in this region?

    Thanks

    check out this site. be careful though, most cool waterfalls are in state / national parks which technically you aren't supposed to fly from. it wouldn't stop me unless there were a park ranger around, just sayin. also, don't harass wildlife ;)

    Thanks, appreciate that. I am so much like him with gadgets and big-boy toys it's not even funny.

    Thanks, Q. I actually decided to try to get to two spots in the same day, will be a different day than visiting Athens though. Tallulah Gorge is one place and the other is Toccoa Falls. That will get my fix for waterfall scenery for the trip. Being in San Diego, you just want to get new footage whenever the opportunity arises.
