Images and Videos from Recovered GoPro Camera Crash w/ DJi Phantom 2

While on vacation in Gulf Shores, AL I took my DJi Phantom 2 quadcopter out for a fly. Within the first 10 minutes it went bezerk and crashed into the ocean. Everything was ruined. Thousands of dollars down the drain in a second.

My GoPro 3+ camera was not in a waterproof case because I had it on the Gimbal. After a week of not working I have been able to get it somewhat functional. I will be posting what I did soon, but the good news is that I was able to retrieve some images and video.

Unfortunately, during my quadcopter going crazy the camera turned off. That tells me that something crazy was going on. I was able to view the first 6 minutes of flight on the beach and over the gulf. I also have a few pictures to share as well. Not many but enough to share.

Enjoy!

Despite my crash, I will be sharing out some videos on how I restored my GoPro and what I am doing to attempt to save my drone, but it is not looking good at this point.
