Description

Jon Miller from The Rest of Everest brings a DJI Phantom to Everest Base Camp in Nepal and attempts to fly the small drone with a gimbal and a GoPro over the Khumbu Glacier. Will the quadcopter fly in the thin air at over 17,500'/5334m? The Phantom was a late-model version 1 modified only with a Tarot T-2D gimbal, 3D printed leg extensions and Phantom v2 propellors.
