If you like my design and want to print your own, you can get the STL on Thingiverse here. I hope you get some use out of it!
commercial options, but the prices range from $5-$200+. I'm certainly not willing to drop that kind of cash, so I fired up some CAD software and took a swing at my own design.

On a lighter note, the original footage was picked up by local media - Kingwood.com (and Part 2), HumbleTX.com, and KHOU Channel 11 all featured the footage. I'll have to see what I can do about getting a copy of the aired footage from KHOU.

Rolling hills, a river, and decades of memories. This scout camp holds a special place in the minds and hearts of many a Boy Scout. El Rancho Cima is a gem, nestled away in the Texas Hill Country.
This area is steeped in lore, both from the old west days, and modern scouts. Ghost stories, shenanigans, legends... Decades of scouting history, and centuries of US history.In the future, I'd like to start making more videos with drone footage narrated by a local expert. If you have any stories you'd like to share to do a voiceover for videos like this one, please Contact Me!

Driving around one day, I saw an absolutely enormous crane/earth mover - Too good of an opportunity to pass without flying around. It's nearly 300 feet tall; absolutely gargantuan.

Last month, the FAA released location data for registered drone owners. Shortly thereafter, Airmap made a heatmap of drone owners, and released it via twitter. We've taken a little more time, and done some assessment of the top 5 states for drone ownership.
There's no surprise here, Silicon Valley has attracted a huge number of UAS hobbyists. 3D Robotics, the leader in US drone manufacturing, is headquartered in Berkley California.
been called out for his controversial flights over the city, but at this time has not been fined, or commented on his flights. New York is also home to NUAIR, another FAA-designated UAS test site, in Griffiss International Airport.
passing more strict rules regarding UAS. This would set a dangerous precedent, as it would open the floodgates to the creation of a patchwork nightmare of drone laws throughout the nation. This patchwork would be difficult to understand and follow, and even harder to enforce. This issue has appeared at least once in courts before, in Gustafson vs City of Lake Angeles, but in the realm of manned aircraft. The result? "Air traffic must be regulated at the national level".
