    Taken with my GoPro B3 and quadcopter. The quadcopter was hovering at 200 feet taking a picture every 2 seconds above our lot, this was one of the best. FYI, the bright red building to the lower left is Dairy Queen :grin: You can see the causeway mid left (6 dollar toll), the Island is pointing towards the North end of Ft Myers Beach, Fl.

    Have the neighbors been calling out the Dept of Homeland Security about the "drones" flying over their houses?

    Very cool photo. Makes me want to learn how to fly one of those things.

    My wife and I vacationed on Sanibel a couple of years ago. We loved it. I can't wait to get the boat on that side of the country.

    No complaints yet, most people enjoy watching it as it has really cool night lights on it! Very easy to fly right out of the box.

    Awesome pic. Haven't been to Sanibel for awhile, but that picture may be the push for me to make that happen this summer. I have been going to Sanibel for 35 years on and off. I know the DQ well. Really miss McT's though.

    Wow. Great aerial!!

    We've been to North Captiva Island right next to Sanibel 4 or 5 times and absolutely love it!! Do you ever make the trip and go over there by boat? It's worth it.
