Going aerial

I've recently gotten into the aerial flight and photography game with something called a Phantom 2 from DJI, who have an office in Austin, TX and are based out of Hong Kong. This particular multirotor has four motors and is operated by a set of joysticks over 2.4 GHz. It holds a GoPro Hero 3-series camera with a stabilized gimbal and I've set it up with a first-person-view (fpv) system that allows me to receive a live video feed at the ground.

It sure has been a blast, with a bunch of learning along the way. Here's a couple of stills:
