Drone Rawlins | Wyoming


Drone flying over Rawlins, Wyoming proved to be a little more windy than expected per wheather.com. I also measured the wind at ground level three times over a 5-minutes period like I normally do when flags are flying fast and I had a top reading of 14 MPH. I then plan for twice that about 150′ which I never get close to in these conditions. Taking off was great and no issue was prevalent as maneuvered about 6′ above me so I flew for a few seconds until a gust hit me on the ground. Still no issue for my drone at about 30′; however, I still started to descend and return home on a safe path. En route to landing you can see my hat blow off with the next gust so I landed sooner even though the drone displayed little impact to the wind. I ate lunch and tried again on the northside closer to the mountains. This time the top wind was 10 MPH on the ground so I felt all was great. At about 45′ I felt a strong gust on my drone and canceled my flight. This is my first time having such strongs winds at that altitude without flying between mountains on in a ocean strait/bay entry. You may still find a few things to enjoy of what I filmed so I am posting it today.

I hope you enjoy and subscribe to this YouTube drone channel while seeing my travels from an aerial view above nature, towns and cities in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia, US, Canada, and several islands @ www.YouTube.com/JamesBeBop . Or please visit my photo website with photos of 49 countries/islands, all 50 states and all but one province in Canada that I could not drive through at www.JGlowacki.com . I love to drive throughout the world whether on the right or left with either left-hand steering or right-hand steering and of course I have become accustomed to using a stick-shift with both hands 🙂 I truly enjoy the great food and discussions with locals where I have been blessed to travel. Included on this channel are some driving and snorkeling videos and even a couple bike rides I recorded.

You can also see my beginning drone videos looking at 2016 dates when I filmed in safe nature areas. I practiced how to crash safely, how to fly with three propellers and how to ground the drone and drive to it. I practiced in snow, rain and extreme cold to make sure I understood the drones limitations before I went to the big cities. I handle a drone like I do a gun and I truly hope others do the same.

Please share your thoughts with me; even if they are not easy to read, I need to know how I am meeting your expectations 😊

Thank you,
