Drone Flies Above Clouds!

Drone flies above the clouds near Richmond Virginia. The low cloud cover and little wind made perfect conditions to fly drones safely without risking fly away. You could see how the day was going to turn out with a little drone flight forecasting above the low lying clouds.

The most popular consumer drone models under $1000 are the Blade 350 QX 3 quad models and the DJI Phantom 3. The links where you can buy these relatively cheap drones are below:
Horizon Hobby Blade 350 QX3 – http://www.horizonhobby.com/350-qx3-ap-combo-rtf-with-safe-technology-blh8160
DJI Phantom 3 AP – http://store.dji.com/?clickaid=L4TR8TDK-wDiLdWJG6XyLLxd2DwS9tuL&clickpid=220169&clicksid=ce21fae73fb2b4cc5669c59fee33ed86

You can buy these drones with an aerial photography video camera or put a GoPro camera on them. The DJI Phantom 3 and Blade 350 QX3 models can be purchased equipped with the camera and electronic gimbal for visual control. The Blade 350 QX can be bound to an existing Spectrum transmitter while the DJI Phantom Vision and similar drone models must be purchased with linked transmitter. You do get more live aerial video range of 2000 meters (6561 feet/1.25 miles) with the DJI. The Horizon Hobby Blade 350 QX 3 AP has same transmitter range of 1.25 miles, but unless you have an independent video transmission, that can also send live video back from your GoPro or stock camera for that range, then the video is very limited.

Be careful when attempting to fly above the clouds as most of the time these clouds are out of transmitter range, unless there is a low lying fog as there was on the morning of this drone flight. The drone is this video is the Blade 350 QX3 with a Sony HDR as100v action camera similar to the GoPro Hero and in my opinion, better. The DJI Phantom drone and the Blade drone are great consumer level drones at a cheaper price. They aren’t cheap drones in quality, but the popularity has brought the price of drone down greatly. They are easy to fly as they are programmed with GPS to return home with a flick of a switch if you find yourself in trouble.
