After getting my hands on the DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse HD-3D I took it out for its third flight. My first two flights produced spectacularly horrible footage thanks to my horrendous piloting skills. I am using the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition in 1080p 60fps and I didn't stabilize the footage in post, all the smoothness comes from the Zenmuse!
The subject is an abandoned ship that sits within Selkirk, Manitoba. I thought it would make for a cool and secluded area to take the phantom out over the water. I wish I was a bit more confident with my flying skills to have gotten a few more angles however I'm still nervous to let the phantom out of my sight. I figured risking the phantom before I'm totally confident in my abilities as a pilot would not be worth the risk of losing thousands of dollars in equipment. So the footage is a tad repetitive... However I added my own score and a quick color grade with Magic Bullet looks to spruce it up.
So sit back and enjoy this quick test! Abandoned Ship!
Advice to new pilots:
Practice makes perfect. As I stated before this was shot on my third flight after I started getting the hang of flying this damn thing... And even then I still almost crashed it. You definitely want to get comfortable with the controls and fly until it becomes second nature because when it comes to a point where you need to make a quick decision you want to be relying on instinct rather than hesitating and causing a crash which could damage your new investment or worse hurt somebody.
Take it slow... Once you get this thing you're going to want to fly it around like a crazy person. Start small and always be safe! Don't fly too close to the sun with wings of wax with this guy, it's not a toy.
Also don't be an asshole and fly these things around airports and wreck it for the rest of us hobbyists... Soon we're going to need ten licenses and forty permits to go six feet off the ground.
