Description


While on our recent trip, I had the Mavic in the air a few times. This drone has a cool feature where you can push a button, and the drone will fly itself back to where it took off, and land in almost the exact spot it took off from. I thought this would be a great opportunity to grab a couple shots of it in the air. It wasn't until later when I looked at the photo that I realized there was another "drone" flying formation with it - Nature's drone! I don't know how many times I've tried to capture a dragonfly in flight - who knew.... LOL Then again....... It might be the T.N.A. Girls with one of Ranpha's creations.... Just keeping an eye on me, you know! I'll have a few more photos from our trip, and maybe a couple more from the insulator show. I have a special image I'll upload tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by, and for all your wonderful comments and support! Rod's Lair Facebook Twitter Girls From T.N.A. Twitter Page DA Patreon My Blog

Thanks for sharing this cool photo of your awesome drone with great features. Your drone must be one of the expensive ones. Will be looking for more.b I can't tell on zoom with my phone what else that is.

Took me a second to realize you considered the Dragon Fly as Nature's drone, I call them flying twigs. Nice shot.

Great capture of the "drones." Good eye sight to discern the dragonfly...Looks like fun and sounds like it has somewhat the same technology that Musk's rockets use to deliver the booster rockets back to earth--just a guess...

The basic technologies are quite similar - use GPS to get within a few feet of the desired landing target, then downward-looking cameras to identify features on the ground stored in the memory of the Falcon 9 booster or Mavic drone. Of course the Falcon's systems are much much more robust. A 4-pound drone is one thing - a several thousand pound rocket full of explosive fuel is quite another!

It still amazes me watching those two Falcon Heavy boosters landing at the same time at KSC. It's like something out of Star Wars.

Dragon fly? I thought first another drone interfering with yours, then guessed an air plane. And then you come with the dragon fly. Hmmm... maybe it was a pterydactyl. You know, we're back in that dino season again! Keep up the good work! :-)

For a second there I thought it was a UFO... but then again that wouldn't be to surprising... great capture!

Well, July 2 was 'World UFO Day...' 😆 Of course the drone was flying on June 27th! LOL

Great steady hand in this shot of your drone. Is it camera equipped? Unless I used my variable LCD monitor to zero in on it I would have fallen over backwards.

Yup, right now nature is making smaller drones, but they don't have cameras as of yet!

That's great! When I zoom I can make out the insect outline. Funny how pictures come out sometimes.

Yes an Alien Drone was spying on you. We are watching. Ever since you human's got wise to our presence. Flying around at night in our strange crafts with our lights on not wanting to be seen (I told the others it was a bad idea and that no, we would not just blend it, with the rest of air traffic - but would listen?) At least they have taken my advice on using the drones now. Can't tell one from another. Your, ours, theirs. Those pesky Centurions. I wish they would find a new vacation spot. We came holidaying here first.

where do you get these wonderful toys

RodS

Pretty much any hobby store has them, Best Buy, Microcenter, or directly from DJI (www.DJI.com). If you want a Mavic, you might want to wait a couple weeks. DJI is coming out with a new version that has even more whistles and bells. ðŸĪŠ
