Here's a video of me just fooling around in the yard, Jane, trying to learn how to steer the thing. It's easy to operate, but still takes some practice to avoid hitting anything. Of course, once you get above 30 meters or so, there's nothing to hit. It will climb to 400 meters and can travel up to 3.5 miles at 35 mph. So it's pretty versatile. I just don't have enough confidence yet to get too high or go too far or fast. But that's coming. Takes beautiful video and stills, too. You can see the shadow of the little drone in the video. I'm sure these are going viral once word gets out.

Awesome, BB! I am so impressed by the hd quality of the video. And good to have surveillance of your property too!

I imagine you will be leaping tall buildings in a single bound in a matter of days. The learning curve may be a challenge but the rewards are addictive!
