I got a new tiny drone today. My “old” drone is nice, but too big to take on walks if I take my camera as well. This one’s small enough to fit in the camera bag. In an attempt to either tempt fate or get over my fear of flying it, I took a walk to the local church to get some photos. This is the same place where I took the drone that I got as a birthday present last year and within 15 minutes, flew it into a tree. About 30m off the ground. Where it stayed until the next day when a tree surgeon came to take it down for me.
Since then, I’ve always felt a bit tense whenever I fly the thing and this feeling is still there with the new one, so I didn’t fly anywhere near any trees!
The new drone’s got a nice panorama feature. It will automatically take 9 photos and stitch them together. This is one of the church, taken just before noon, so the light isn’t ideal.
