    imgur had it's 5th birthday party in Golden Gate Park over the weekend, complete with bouncy castle! Of course I had to bring the drone to video the event.

    I am still having vibration issues with the Dronexpert gimbal, haven't found a way to solve that yet. It's very noticeable when the the scene is washed out.

    Spikeball ... first time I have ever seen it. It's apparently getting very popular.

    Nice video! enjoyed seeing the crowd interact with the camera which is pretty much the same reaction I get when people see me flying mine (spend more time explaining about the phantom than flying it :? )

    regards

    Thanks! Ya, people always rush up to ask a million questions. I actually had a lot of fun at this party because there was so many geeks. Geeking out is way more fun then talking to someone who doesn't have a basic understanding of flight or electronics.

    I was flying very controlled over every one. I wasn't just wildly swooping in and out. I started off the day much more casual and got closer once people got more comfortable with it. I flew a total of 4 batteries over the course of 3 hours.

    Was this the phantom 2? Or the first one? We're you using fpv?

    Phantom Vision, most of it was flown without FPV. There are a few very long shots that I flew only looking at the phone.

    If it's you're people, it's perfectly fine to injure them. It's in the Phantom guidebook! :D
