Washington D.C. From a DJI Phantom 2

by DronerMarch 11, 2014

This aerial view of Washington D.C. is remarkable for several reasons. Not only is it unusual to see this perspective of the U.S. capital city, it’s also rare to see footage from a GoPro without all the usual lens distortion. Viktor Mirzoyan took the time to process the footage from his DJI Phantom 2 flight to remove the barrel distortion so common in these types of clips. Thanks for the attention to detail, Viktor!

Washington D.C. like you’ve never seen it

    As soon as the FAA catches wind of this video they are going to be knocking on your door. DC has a zero tolerance no fly zone of roughly a 16 mile radius of the White House.

    A guy in Adams Morgan had a drone called a phantom, and all he did was fly it around his street and is now in legal entanglements which I am sure is costing him a mint in legal defense.

    That is unless you had a permit to fly.

    You can’t even fly an RC airplane in that 16 mile radius.

    Just a heads up!

    “This aerial view of Washington D.C. is remarkable for several reasons. Not only is it unusual to see this perspective of the U.S. capital city . . .”
    It rare because it’s against the law! Now that every yahoo with $1500 can perform aerial stunts with complete disregard to public safety and federal regulations, those of us that fly responsibly can look forward to overbearing new regulations that ban ANY type of flying. I’ve been flying UAV’s responsibly for over a year, and hate to see cowboys like this that will ruin it for all because of their selfishness and ignorance. Way to go Viktor! At least now the Feds have your picture and a pretty good idea of where you live. You should be hearing a knock on your door right about . . . now!
