Manfrotto D1 for DJI Phantom

If you're in the market for a drone bag, that is innovative and has plenty of extra room for other gear. Look no further. ( I can go without the red piping though.)

So I just scooped this new bag. Note, it's strictly designed for the Phantom 3 and below. People have said the Phantom 4 does not fit in these. I can be wrong. Anyone want to lend me their 4. I'll test it out. All other drones like, the 3dr Solo will not fit either. 

The bag costed 199. I bought mine up from Amazon here, or you can find it on Manfrotto's site here. 

The reason why I bought this bag over any of the other bags on the market is:
1. Most importantly. Holds the drone and the Remote.
2. Holds my laptop. 
3. Has an upper compartment to hold my camera gear. Lumix G7, 2 Lens, 1 GoPro and some mounts. It holds alot. BUT VERY BIG.

Here is my favorite part about the bag. The access panel in the front has three clips inside, to hold the drone with its propeller assembled.. This is super useful when you're shooting on location moving from one point to another, and don't want to disassemble the drone. Very innovative Manfrotto. 

Eyes In The Sky

Here are some photos I took while Unboxing the Phantom 3. All you haters out there, I'm about to have a bird eye view of you. (joke) I'm sure you've seen plenty floating around the web, but these are specially taken by me for you. So enjoy them.

I posted a short video taken from the Phantom a few days ago. Its two post down check it out. I'm so stoked to own this drone, and can't wait to fly it more.  I'd have to boldly say though, but the 4k footage taken from the Phantom 3 Professional is superior over the Hero 4k. Yes, I own both. There is a crispy difference right off the card pre-editing. No, I haven't done any scientific testing yet, and this is purely a human eye test, but that's probably as scientific as most consumers would go. So step it up GoPro. If I'm wrong can someone prove me wrong?

Droning Around

So I learned to fly today.

What I mean, is I bought a DJI Phantom 3 Professional. Thought I'd get into drone filming, it'll definitely add dynamic shots to my videos. Not that I'm a professional or anything, but new angles to add to my boring ass GoPro shots, is a plus.  I'm still super nervous at flying this thing, and currently only comfortable with taking selfies, because it only requires me to go straight up,  then back down. I'm too much of a wimp to push it hard. Don't be fooled by the shitty sweeping shots in the edit above. I freaked out trying to pilot the phantom even to do that. Give me a few weeks though, I'm determined to master this thing. 

Enjoy the short edit for Instagram.
