    Went to a state park and just asked if I could fly and they said no problem. Here is the 720p downlink footage from the DJI app. The original will be edited in 4k when I get home.

    Cracking scenery. It is so sad you guys are excluded from flying and filming in National Parks. But perhaps that's the answer: ask politely and permission might just be given.

    I'm hoping to do the same, and showcase some of the beautiful scenery here in the Highlands; I'm just waiting for the strong winds to die down and the weather to improve <sigh>.

    I
    im actually from the UK some maybe the accent help but they were very good about it telling me where I can fly and where they prefer me not to.
    I moved here 2 months ago and the restrictions do seem a little crazy! It's just BAN BAN BAN.

    I look after thousands of acres here, pretty much as far as the eye can see. The river is at an elevation of 140 ft above sea level, with the highest ground a little over 2000 ft. Some places, I only need to fly 100 yards from my take off point and the Phantom would be hovering at 1500 ft. The hills are steep here, so should make for some interesting photographic opportunities, if only the weather would behave.

    You filmed some fantastic scenery. Whenever I see that kind of terrain, I can't help but think of dinosaur fossils. If it were me, I'd be torn between flying or searching for a tooth or fragment of bone.

    Yes, I already guessed, fossil hunting is not allowed...

    Jesus I thought someone used a gun to shoot your bird. Glad it's OK.
