About the Image(s)

This is from October 2017... 1/400 sec, f/2.6, ISO 100, jpeg
My first and last time using the drone at work, and in a downtown space. This is a view of the TV trucks I work in from above. I was still new, still learning, and didn't realize that that you shouldn't fly the drone in a congested city area.
I took the drone up, got this photo, and was going to bring it straight back down. But instead of just bringing it back down, I hit return to home, and the drone took off.
It actually landed on the power plant next door, I had to knock on the door of the security office and a really nice security guy went up and got it. Luckily the placement was correct on the DJI app, so he found it right away.
I'll never do that again.

I like the image and that's a great story. Detroit is just up the road from Toledo where I live.   Posted: 08/03/2019 13:29:41

Definitely a learning experience of what not to do. I like Michigan, Toledo, Grand Rapids, Detroit. I usually get to Toledo for a golf tournament, but I didn't go this year. I'll have to look you up if I get offered that job again next year.   Posted: 08/08/2019 14:49:38

Yes the LPGA event in July... I missed it this year for family issues. I hope to get back on it next year.

Very interesting story Lisa, if you didn't say nobody know this image special because really challenge by first time drone but in confined space like that - it show flyer should be a high experience. Lucky didn't hit the window !   Posted: 08/17/2019 16:35:45

I was so very lucky.... it didn't hit any windows, the security guard was understanding... and I'll never do that again.   Posted: 08/17/2019 16:41:42
