Here's a short video of my son and I paddling our canoe out in Georgian bay this past July. With all the new regulations in Canada, there are very few places where you can legally fly a drone these days (can't be near people, cars, buildings in Provincial Parks etc.), but since this trip was through un-populated Crown Land we took the drone along to get some bird's-eye view video. I'm using a Parrot Bebop 2 drone that shoots 1080 HD video with a built-in camera. It fits in a Pelican 1400 case (with the props removed) and I can fly it with my smart phone. I have an app on my phone called "Follow Me" which allows me to have the drone track our progress so we can concentrate on paddling and let the computer in the drone do the flying. Please have a look:

Great little video. I love it out there. Those narrow passageways are fun to explore---like a riddle to solve---never quite sure if one can get thru or not. Last year we went from Bayfield to Byng. Lots of rattlers last year, though!

Quite the campsite! (in calm weather at least) :D
