    I shot this footage during an intense lightning storm from my DJI Phantom. Being the avid storm chaser and photographer that I am, when I saw this coming I grabbed my gear and took off. I was out ahead of it by 5 miles or so when I shot this. Sure, I risked losing a $1200 piece of equipment, but I had to try it out. Actually, I checked and there were no reported outflow winds...

    Everything came down safe and sound and I was able to not only get this, but some great still photos from the ground.

    Very cool. If you have video stabilization software you should run this clip through it. Makes it a lot easier to watch.
