So a little backstory...
I got a Timelapse of this front coming at me, and when it was finished I had to fly farther away to get a wider picture... with a tailwind.

So I fly about 2000 feet away and start taking pictures... at 18% battery.

(I already know I'm not making the wisest decisions with those two choices, but sometimes the picture is worth the chance, as you'll see below)

Okay, back to the story... I am finished taking pictures, and must return home... in a headwind... with about 13% battery now.

Sport mode, full forward stick... going 8 mph... HUH?!?! no high wind warnings whatsoever.

Drop elevation (at 383 feet)... okay doing 15 mph now (200 feet)... 10% battery, forced descent now.

At 111 feet AGL I'm finally making headway at 20 mph. Still 500 feet away. 6% battery.

Overhead at 4%.

Landed at 2.5% lol

Here's the outcome...

SOOOOO WORTH IT

Hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed bringing out all the colors in post!

Thanks Dale! I really appreciate it!


Your website is 100x better than mine, but I'm gaining traction now lol.

My wife and I just quickly glanced it over (taking a deeper dive later)... We love it man.

We both think there's a picture or two in there we've seen published. If not, they should have been. Great Stuff Dale!

Thanks for looking at the web site If you click on any image there will be a full set of images for that subject. Also, there is a section for timelapses.
