Mount Vernon Ohio R.C. Airplane Park Photo by Sam Miller

Mount Vernon, Ohio has so many fun things to do especially considering the community only has a population of around 16,000 people.  Today I visited one of Mount Vernon's 8 parks and I had a little fun during my lunch at the Park on Cougar Drive near the Mount Vernon Nazarene University.  This public park is specifically for flying remote controlled airplanes which are often referred to as R.C. Planes.  This is a super fantastic park because there are no power poles, no electric lines, there aren't any big trees with branches and the land is nice and level.  If you have ever flown or tried to land an R.C. airplane you will appreciate the open space and design of this large and open park.

I am a huge fan of pretty much any product that utilizes modern technology ranging from the GPS in my SUV, the Apple iPad, DSLR cameras, iPhones, portable cellular broadband networks...for some reason I really dig technology.  Today I got my first chance to test out a new piece of technology that I plan to use for our real estate iPad controlled drone helicopter.  The plan is to shoot aerial footage using an HD quality camera mounted on our helicopter and do real estate fly overs and capture very unique video and photo opportunities that were never before possible with the more traditional digital camera setups.  Today I only shot in standard resolution because it was very windy plus I haven't mastered the balance and stability controls yet so my flying has a little added motion.  Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to view the video.
