Split Rock Lighthouse – Aerial Flyover

This is the first PDD Drone video, shot at Split Rock Lighthouse on Christmas Day. It was only the fourth flight in the drone’s young career, and we are still in the practice mode of getting smooth flyovers and panning when shooting video. We are improving with each flight and I personally think it is a huge accomplishment that the PDD Drone is not sitting at the bottom of Lake Superior … yet. So enjoy this unique perspective of Split Rock Lighthouse and let us know what you think.

The PDD Drone is a DJI Phantom 2 Vision.

I would be scared sh*tless that the $$$ drone would become another shipwreck too.  Guess you just have to practice a lot before going out over water.  Then again, if you don't use them for what they were made for why bother, right? 

Awesome footage!
