    There's one out there of a flight over Conowingo, Sam. A little too shaky for my taste, but it's impressive that you can see an eagle flying at the same height as the drone.

    At least the monkey didn't try to mate with it.

    "And now class...monkey's in the wild..."

    DJI is on fire. New Inspire 2 and Hero 4 Pro are rocking incredible new feature upgrades including seriously badass new camera tech.

    And I'm finally in. I've ordered a Mavic Pro. They are taking the crown for 'bang for the buck' drones that go anywhere due to small size and easy operation.

    The bad news? They are still impossible to get in store. Pick an option (Newegg/Amazon/BestBuy/B&H/ Apple) and wait up to a month for delivery.

    I did not take this photo, but did the post processing of it for a family member who wanted to enlarge it as a Christmas gift. It had a lot of noise in it.

    We have been discussing taking a trip to Iceland with some friends of ours. He found this video, which I thought was very well done.

    I didn't crash my first two flights, I call that a win. So much to learn!
