It's easy to forget just how far drones have come in the last few years. This photograph was captured with a GoPro Hero 3+ Black that was attached to a DJI Phantom 2 drone. It's a bit grainy and the sky is definitely blown out but it's a good reminder of the beginning of fall, which is just around the corner up on Beech Mountain.
This is the Buckeye Recreation Center and Buckeye Lake, which is the recreational hub for Beech Mountain. It has the most amazing playground, made by hand out of giant logs and natural rope. There is also a really fun hike called "Falls Loop Trail" that starts off deep in the forest until you come upon a nice waterfall and then follow the creek that feeds it back up to Buckeye Lake.
You won't find any of my old Phantom 2s reviewed at Kit.com/Spangard but if you want to see what I'm flying and shooting with these days, check it out!
