RWENZORI Pax Arctica expedition – Jan 24, 2014

Following yesterday's ascent of Margherita Peak (5109m), we successfully continued testing of our drone (quadcopter equipped with gimbal and gopro video camera) at high altitude (4800m). Great results so far. http://ow.ly/i/4rDbB.
 

Only constraint is to operate with no wind as the drone is not heavy. I am here trying to teach Richard Atugonza (Master - Makerere University - Kampala) my modest piloting skills. Definitely a first attempt at filming with drone at this altitude and in this location – to be continued as this has a lot of potential (GPS measurements, visuals from unreachable areas, etc.). http://ow.ly/t7wyN
