Sunset Testing, back in the air

Flight time so far: 44 Mins

First time where the opportunity, weather and space combined to give me some flight time. One of my primary goals for the drone is landscape photography, so I thought it was time for some sunset testing

First impressions are that as expected with a sunset, really need to shoot it in HDR, not sure if I can get enough stability for this in the air. I’ll have to explore the camera exif data when I look at the shots more.

Importantly, after its crash the drone seems to be in reasonable state. Did struggle to keep a solid green GPS lock tonight, even at 200+ foot. Had seven satellites. so not entirely sure why. Must remember to always check s1/s2 switches before takeoff.

flight time: 16 minutes
