Well today I’m waiting for the sun to rise. I’m off to my parents to take some aerial photos. In my About Me blog I mentioned my parents used to purchase aerial photos of their house and property. This year I’m going to take some photos and get one printed and framed for Christmas. A great gift for ANY occasion. I hope my Mom and Dad aren’t reading this blog. I’ll post a pic later.
I’m home. I stopped in Manotick on the way to my parents and sent my drone up to photograph Watson’s Mill. It’s such a beautiful spot.
I finally arrived at my folks house and took some aerial shots. I have decided to wait til late spring, early summer to take my aerials. The green will look better than the grey
I then decided to go to Kilmarnock Locks which is part of the Rideau Canal system. It has one of the last and oldest swing bridges still in operation. It is a historical site. I have again decided to return when the boats are lined up in the late spring.
A scary thing happened while I was at the locks. I was hovering over the water when the Phantom suddenly acted erratically and started flying an unexpected direction. I had to act quick from fear that my drone would end up in the water. I managed to get it over land and put it on the ground. I still don’t know what the issue was. Battery too cold? or brief interruption in battery or link engaging the Return to Home feature. I tried looking at the log but nothing. Going to do some research. I got a cold battery warning earlier in the shoot at 17 degrees Celsius.
