Anyone else tried it? Works pretty well. This spot looks good enough even 90% of THF couldn't mess this hunt up. lizard

What kind of drone are you running Barney? What kind of air time do you get out of it? What kind of range out away from you can it go? Seems to have pretty good pic quality.

Awesome!! I was asking about this regarding hog, definitely feel like it can work! I'm going to use it for scouting.

But, also make sure you're safe with the rules https://tpwd.texas.gov/business/permits/land/wildlife_management/aerial_wl_management/

"The Aerial Wildlife Management (AWM) Permit is a permit issued by Texas Parks and Wildlife to count, photograph, capture, or take wildlife or exotic animals by use of aircraft, including unmanned aircraft systems (drones)."

True, but many other states have the same laws. And hell, he could even already have the AWM permit/already know about what I'm saying! I'm just saying be careful...

Phantom III advanced. Air time depends on how strong the wind is. I'd say on average around 40 minutes per battery. Definitely get several battery packs if you buy one for scouting. Range is around 3 miles. Again that depends on your line of sight to the drone. Yeah, cameras on these things are pretty nice. those were screen captures. I'm sure there are better ways to capture the pictures from the video than a screen shot for quality. I also believe you can put Go Pros on some of the drones if you wish.
