    I was worried about having the dreaded tilted horizon issue to I said screw it to the 40 mph winds and took her up anyway. That's why you can really see the props when I'm going into the wind. Wish I could play it full screen for you guys, Palo Duro Canyon is pretty amazing

    Is the rusty old car that drove off the cliff still there?

    It reminds me a lot of the Tarn Gorge in France.
    Vimeo is a pain here I can never seem to play 1080p without buffering

    There are a couple of old rusty cars at the bottom near the entrance. I wish I could film inside the canyon, with all the caves and such.

    Why can't you? We drove down to the bottom when we went just a few years back.

    I will look into the use of drones in Texas State Parks. I'm sure there is a lot of disinformation out there in reference to this.

    I actually called the Dieector of state parks in Texas and his excuse was disturbance of wildlife and disruptive to visitors.

    So I looked it up and it's up to the individual park apparently.

    "State parks don't allow drones to be flown without park permission." Taken from here: Picture This: Drones Are the New Eye in the Sky|July 2015| TPW magazine

    You'd think they'd want to promote the parks with the footage we can obtain.
