We had the amazing opportunity to travel to Chattanooga TN earlier this February with Calen's band Hoyle for writing, recording and exploring. Also around the same time, we just purchased our first drone, the DJI Phantom 2 and had to take it with us to TN. We had no idea that the locations there were absolutely breathtaking.
We met up with some friends in that area and they showed us around all the best places to explore. In the video you will see scenes from Lookout Mountain, Cloudland Canyon, Rock City and our cabin in Rising Fawn, GA. Here is our explorations through the quadcopter's eyes. It is simply breathtaking how beautiful these places were. Really impressed with this drone. It was so fun and scary at the same time filming at these locations. Hope you enjoy the video.

**Just purchased the Fatshark Predator V2 Goggle and transmitter and will be trying that out next. I had a difficult time with the monitor whenever the GoPro adjusted the brightness when I was filming into the sun. Contrast was difficult to make out and wasn't clear enough to see the trees sometimes. I will say though that the range was amazing down the canyon. I sped up that shot and I still didn't have any transmission interference. I could have flew further but got nervous because no one could physically see it anymore.
