Drone flight over Green Mountain FS Rd. area
« on: April 04, 2017, 08:21:04 PM »
I got to take advantage of our one day of good weather to get out in the hills for a little while anyway  :tup:.  It's cool to me to be able to see all the areas that are normally inaccessible, there's a lot of beautiful country out there that I've been missing out on.

Been up that mountain many times...pretty neat to see it in a different perspective  :tup:

Question, what is the remote range on those things?

Up to 4 miles, but in western Washington with all the trees and hills it's usually closer to 2ish miles.

Yup

That was pretty neat.  They have a drone at costco that has a 4k camera in it and a follow me mode. Also controllable by  your phone in Bluetooth.
Only problem is it has a 12 min flight time limit..
What kind of drone are you using?
If its brown knock it down

I have the DJI Mavic.  When a drone like the one you mentioned at Costco uses Bluetooth, the range is generally pretty short, like under 100 feet.  Something to look at  :tup:

Couple Green Mt in WA.  I would assume that is the one over by Verlot?

No, it's Green Mountain Rd off mountain loop highway outside granite falls.  Forest service road that starts directly across the highway from the Old Robe Canyon trailhead.

Really nice day hike, I'd like to get some footage there too!
