Above Moonstone Beach
On December 24, local videographer extraordinaire Chad Johnson took his trusty quadcopter to Moonstone Beach and came up with something truly beautiful. The day was not without its problems: says Chad, "my battery died on the 4th flight right over the river. I went in the water and lost the quad for 2 hours as I dredged the river in a borrowed wetsuit, using a big stick. Just as I was about to give up I stepped on the quad about 2 feet from the first place I looked. Amazingly the GoPro [camera] survived!"
Costly, perhaps. But for us anyway, well worth it.
