Well for the last 3 nights/morning, I've been trying to video the Delta 4 heavy rocket launch from my house with my DJI phanotom 3. This rocket is the biggest of their fleet. This will be the second time they have launch this rocket. First was back in Jan. That was a day flight and it was bright enough for us to see. This time it will be taking off from Cape Carnival Florida Aug. 29 2:04 AM. This will be a awesome flight to video with the drone since it will be dark out. NASA is calling this their, fireworks at night flight. Weather permitted, I'm hoping to have the chance to record. This is the dog days of summer for us. With all the heat and sunshine comes the afternoon thunderstorms with it.

Here I'll try again. @5:54 PM EST there're trying to get this rocket, ULA Atlas V NROL-101, up into space. They were suppose to launch yesterday around the same time but the launch was scrub...AGAIN! So I have my Phantom 3 ready to record...if it happens. So far it's cloudy and windy here on the west coast of Florida. It could be different weather condition on the east coast which is 310 miles away from where I'm at. If all goes well, I'll post up the flight.

It`s windy on the East coast too, but I hope you get some good video if they get to launch.
