    While taking a few long exposure pictures, I noticed a drone flying towards me! the person got close enough where I thought they were going to crash into me. After looking at the video, noticed it was a phantom (looking at the lens, it looks like a phantom 3, not sure if it was a standard, advanced or professional.

    Sorry about the noise in the video, didn't have time to change the settings correctly.

    That's pretty wild! What are the chances?! It was pretty well lit-up with the red front lights. I assume yours were on too? Looks like he saw you and ran (flew) away!

    Looks to me like very deliberate approch and well executed maneuver ... the look into the cockpit, the fall off, and the goodbye wing wave.

    He did that to say hello. That's awesome. To drones passing in the night…
