As I’ve Mentioned in other posts Phillip and I love to find new places to fly his DJI Phantom 4. We have taken videos of beaches, buildings, lakes and oh so many other places and things but this is the first time we have taken a video of a fireworks show!
Finding New Things To Do
We enjoy doing new things together and love it even more when we can share these times with family and friends. When Phillip heard about the fireworks show at the Coyote Drive-in he immediately began to make plans to take the drone and see if it would be able to video them. We just had to bring an audience with us. We brought along our daughter-in-love Anna, our Daughter Cindy, her husband Dean, his mother DeAnna and our two grandchildren Bronson and Ally.
This turned out to be a very fun time for all of us and the drone worked perfectly. We were all surprised how well the video came out. Phillip just flew it up to about 390 feet and let it sit and record the show. He even streamed it on Facebook Live! When the show was over he flew it down and shot a picture of all of us.
The DJI Phantom 4
Phillip did a lot of research before he bought this drone and it paid off. He has had this drone for over a year and has only had one small problem with the memory card holder. Customer service at DJI was excellent and he was very satisfied with their help getting this minor issue repaired.
It is pretty easy to get the hang of flying it. I have even flown it and I am a total amateur! It has many features that make it just as fun to watch as it is to fly. If you are interested in drones I highly recommend the DJI Phantom 4.
