Fly Fishing and the Phantom DronePublished by Dave Kile [dkile] on 06/23/2014 (2951 reads)
This past April Chris Spangler from Slinger Fly Rods posted an early flight of his Phantom DJI Drone Quadcopter over Young Woman's Creek.. He has been braving his drone (that's what I 'm going to call it) over the Pennsylvania streams and waters for just over six months. His latest video takes us over Kettle Creek in Pennsylvania. I nice six minute run over the creek with anglers fly fishing.
"Part of me was worried that it would be too difficult to operate and devastating to crash and ruin. Add in the GoPro Hero 3 and it made me even more nervous. The learning curve believe it or not was very slim. It's very basic in its functions. If you have ever played video games in your life you can operate this machine from day one with minimal instruction", shared Chris.
Heberly from Paflyfish and kids were part of the fun while Chris flew the Phantom over Kettle Creek.
A lot of news and controversy with drones as of late. The US Park Service has banned them from US Parks for example. I hope Chris can share more of these great images of these fly fishing waters in the region. I for one enjoy the images.
