Robb Long shoots aerial footage with his DJI Phantom 2 of the flood of 2014

Had the opportunity to really put my DJI Phantom 2 to the test when I decided to head down to the Southeast part of South Dakota to capture some footage of the Flood of 2014. I decided to keep to a small town so I could get footage of how the flooding took hold of Brandon, SD damaging property from roadways, farms, the golf course and a race track.

This was tons of fun but difficult at the same time as I was flying blind because I didn't have my FPV set up quite yet. Technology used was the Phantom 2 drone, Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal, GoPro Hero 3+ Black 2.7K @30P Protune, 3 stop ND Filter and of course mounted some anti-vibration pads under the props and to the back of the camera. I graded all this in GoPro's Studio.

Thanks and hope you enjoy!
