The ultimate 4wd spot from above - DRONE

On a recent trip to Kalbarri, we decided that the town was WAY to busy and we should try and go up river. We found some cracker spots for a day trip and decided to put up the drone.

I’m still a bit trigger happy on the drone, but getting smoother with the controls. It did not help sitting in the passenger seat of the 4wd whilst trying to play pilot.

Kalbarri is located approx 5 hours drive north of Perth.



Some Unreal Footage

Just recently I managed to find some time to head down to my mates place in Fingal, NSW. To most Fingal seems like a bit of a trek, but what I have noticed recently is that the Gold Coast has pretty much all merged all the way down the coast and now it just doesn’t seem that far to get to Fingal. It was a nice winters day with little to no wind. Checkout the video of the Phantom 4 performing flawlessly.

DJI Phantom 4 Drone

Last week I was trying to decide upon a hobby both my son and I could do together…Now buying a drone was not one of those “Homer Simpson – Bowling Ball” moments but a decision that would have us get out of the house a little more often. Even though the Phantom 4 Drone is a one-man show it can still be enjoyed by all the family. Well, I hope it can! So we purchased the DJI Phantom 4 last week and to our surprise only took 3 days to arrive directly from Hong Kong! (Thanks DHL and BecexTech AU) The drone arrived in good order and we did not have much trouble getting the unit up and running. It helps to spend a few hours on youtube to figure out all the issues first so that it is smooth sailing when you get it.


DJI Phantom 4 - From Zero to Hero in 5 minutes

This is a quick and nasty HD summary of day 1 with the drone…It went up, it did the whole “Auto Tracking” thing really well and we did not crash it! I’d say pretty successful. I think the biggest tip is to get all the firmware updated prior to first flight and ensure you let the drone warm up and acquire at least 10+ GPS satellites before taking off.
