Drone Week, Part 5
Wow, the drone school is all done! I am exhausted in a wonderful way. As Lilly Tomlin was fond of saying, "It was jam packed and fun-filled!" There was so much information to learn but it was taught by really wonderful instructors. From the left is Matt, the main instructor, and then three drone pilots, and then the seminar director, and then the woman who kept it all organized. What a great group! What a seminar! It was such a rewarding experience.
And this is another drone portrait - it is the entire class, photographed on the astroturf in the Manley Field House, gathered around the giant orange "S" which stands for "Syracuse."
I have just realized that I have been remiss... All these posts during "Drone Week" and I haven't once showed you a drone! Duh! This is the DJI Phantom 4 which was one of the drones I got to fly. You can see underneath the machine the camera that it comes equipped with. The camera does both still and video images, and with the ability to move across the ground and climb to one or two hundred, the images are astounding when this is used well.
