First flight with a drone at the Roundhouse in Toronto

First flight with a drone at the Roundhouse in Toronto

I received my DJI Phantom 3 drone on Monday and here are a couple of pictures of the first flight! I have been waiting for this for a long time, and I am really happy about it. The first flight went great, no issues at all. The drone is quite easy to fly, with the live view.

The battery only lasts about 20 minutes, so the flight is rather short. I need to buy extra batteries, because now I just go home to charge it!

As I said, the live view is awesome and gives you a lot of control over the camera. Sometimes it is so absorbing that you have to be careful and keep an eye on the drone.

The RAW files are 12MP, with a pretty good quality. There was a bit of noise on these images (that were shot at ISO 100), so we’ll see if this becomes an issue.

I will definitely post a longer review, but I wanted to give you a first peek right away. I am going to fly the drone a lot over the coming weeks, so you should start to see some interesting pictures.
