Rust Bucket

rust bucket old car

Made a 3D model of this rust bucket found in the California desert.

Happen to have the DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone with me while traveling to Havasu Landing. Use the DJI Go 4 app and set the photos to every 2 seconds. Only did 2 orbits. Processed this with Pix4D, but also running the process through DroneDeploy and Rality Capture to do a comparison. 63 images

Also my first time adding background image and sound to Sketchfab.

Not sure what kind of car it “was”. ūüôā

Adding this to our Drone Diva Desi and Kens Krusades adventures.

Check out the sketchfab model

Swansea Ghost Town

Swansea Ghost Town Arizona


Swansea Ghost Town Arizona

I have been riding motorcycles and off road vehicles in Arizona all my life.  Swansea has always fascinated me.   I enjoyed taking the DJI Phantom there to film.

The¬†town¬†was once¬†a copper mining town from the early 1900’s, and is located in the desert of La Paz County Arizona.


FAA Section 333 Exemption

I got the FAA Section 333 Exemption!

Today is a great day.¬†¬†¬† I am very excited to say On The Go is officially open for business.¬†¬† ūüôā

I had written a post about the FAA offering exemptions and many people have been applying.¬†¬† I am glad to see so many people reaching out to “do things right”.¬†¬† I hope to use my exemption not only to not only for business, but to serve others and our community.¬†¬† I want to “reach & teach“.¬†¬†UAV’s have such an¬†important ¬†role in our future and I am glad to be able to reach out to people and young kids and show them the proper safe way to use a UAV (aka Drone).

Maninho e Poconé

I had the pleasure of filming the Country rock group Maninho e Poconé when I was at the DJI event in Nevada.

Ken and I went to Rawhide Ghost Town (photos to be uploaded soon).¬†¬† Stacy Garlington at DJI with Adobe hosted a fly-in on Aug. 9 2015.¬†¬† It was a blast.¬† Ken and I drove the motorhome out the day before since Ken loves the whole “ghost town and mining”¬† thing, and¬† I LOVE to fly.¬†I was the perfect combination.

While I was flying the day before the DJI event we met up with the Country rock band Maninho e Pocon√©¬† from Brazil who were there filming their video.¬†¬† I was able to get in on a small part of the filming action.¬† I loved meeting with them and working with them.¬† After visiting with them they told me how they had the DJI Inspire but nobody knew how to fly it.¬† Of course I gladly offered my services and they graciously said I was always welcome…. they should be careful what they say, I may show up on their doorstep.¬† lol

I’m passing all of the video on to them, but I was able to make my own short little clip.¬† ūüôā¬† Hope you enjoy it the as much as I did making it.

Mottes Historical Museum

Mottes Historical Museum is in Menifee (Romoland) CA.¬†¬† They are right off Hwy 74.¬†¬† I love filming barns and this one is awesome.¬†¬† It’s open to the public and worth the trip to see.¬† They have classic cars inside and they also are a great venue for weddings and events.¬† I used my new DJI Phantom 3 Pro for this video.¬† It was my first video with this UAV.
