Fantastic, while it lasted… (I’m a twit)

I am really loving my new drone, it can do fun things like this:

And with the addition of a polarizing filter the pictures it takes, even in bright sunshine, are detailed and lovely.

This is an HDR panorama of the the sound from above the parking lot:

And here are another couple, Playland and then looking back the other way at the church:

Then I started taking a few more detailed shots around the church, including the steeple:

And that’s when I made my fatal mistake, I forgot that this little, tiny drone, sophisticated though it may be, has forward, backward, and downward obstacle avoidance, but not sideways. And I was just maneuvering to get a shot of the shrub that’s growing out of the roof above the main door when I must have clipped the steeple and down it came 🙁 It doesn’t look too bad, and it will power on, it just won’t take off.

Ah well, nothing ventured, nothing gained, and this is why I took out the optional DJI accidental damage insurance 🙂 and they’ve already sent me a shipping label to send it in. I just hope I get it back in time to take it to the UK in August!
