Bird's Eye View - Kentucky Dam Marina
Share
clear

h

A DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter owned by Terry Stafford was used to get beautiful bird’s eye views of Kentucky Dam Marina on the north end of Kentucky Lake. My Sony pocket camera took the video of the quadcopter and recorded the audio. You will see a marina in views probably never seen before as the quadcopter or drone flies around. At one point the noise of the drone scares a large flock of sea gulls that fly around and get very close to the drone giving Terry a real scare. If one had hit the drone, both the gull and the drone could have dropped into the lake. This drone does not float and would have been lost if it hit the water. Terry did a masterful job of bringing the drone home not once but twice on a very narrow dock.  The row of boats beside the launching pad belong to members of the  Grand Lakes Yacht Club that were attending the club’s season kickoff party. You can see the Katy Leigh on the right side with the blue bimini. It looks kind of puny compared to the other boats from the Grand Lakes Yacht Club. 

One of our friends was so excited by this new toy three days after this event he won an auction on eBay and won. Now we have two drones within a few feet of our slip at Kenlake Marina.
