  • DJI Phantom 4 Maiden Flight

    Maiden flight of my Phantom 4... The winds were too strong for fixed wing even though we tried our wings. The gusts would just knock them right over on their sides so I was leery about how the Phantom would perform but it was just rock steady. There's some real magic going on inside this thing!

    Wow you can't tell there was any wind at all. That's some beautiful country. Nice video and good music with it.

        Thanks FF!! One of the things I like best about Baltimore is if you go 15 miles out of the city you end up in farmland.

          I know!!! I was super shocked! When I was flying my wing in that wind and was landing it just knocked it over sideways. I crashed. ! My friend Shane right at the end of the video threw his wing up in the air (literally) and lasted about a minute before giving up. Too bad because we were going to maiden his tri-plane...

              Thanks!! It's a fantastic camera platform. I used it in this video as well. You can really tell which parts are from airplanes and which were from the Phantom 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLQg4yc5eRA
