    After the wind blowing 100 mph over the past 10 days, I was pent up because I couldn't fly the Phantom 3

    It finally laid down to a nice 4 mph this evening and after dinner we went out and did some shots of downtown.
    hope you like it.

    Another great video DB. After watching the one you had on several days ago and listening to the music, I found the CD online for $4.00 free shipping, and the DVD at the library. Great entertainment. We made a trip several years ago that followed the route of Lewis and Clark, so the DVD brought back some good memories. Keep it up with the Phantom.

    That is cool.
    What kind of range and altitude does that have?

    Great job Cooper. I like those drones, and I've wanted one but I keep holding myself back for one simple reason. I'd be flying it and videoing what I'm not suppose to.:eek: Got any restricted areas near ya?;)

    That's classified:D

    Range is .5 kilometer
    Altitude is about the same BUT you are supposed to maintain visual contact
    All of depends on the weather and airport restrictions

    It's illegal to fly drones in Pullman WA or Moscow ID due to a 5 mile radius around the airport. :(

    I think you just have to register the drone and then notify the airport if you are going to fly
    At least that's the way I understand it
