High Resolution Field Day Drone Photos

David VK4ICE bought his DJI Phantom 4 along to the ORARC field day this year and took it for a fly – here’s the results:

The images are all 4000×2250 pixels in size, so if you’ve got a big monitor make sure you go full screen for maximum effect.  The images are naturally large, so be patient when flicking through them – each one is around 1MB or just over.

The drone also took video footage of the flight, which we hope to see on YouTube shortly – when we do you’ll see it here.

If you’re wondering about the marvel of technology that took these shots (and they are a marvel), have a look at the DJI Phantom 4 product page here.  So much want!
