Phantom 2 Vision + Used to Get Unique Perspective of Earthquake Damaged Buildings in Napa, California

As the West Coast Editor for our sister magazine FlyRC, I was startled awake at 3:20 AM on August 24, 2014 by the terrifying rumble and intense shaking of a 6.0 magnitude earthquake. The epicenter of the quake was about 20 miles to the southeast of my home. The hardest hit areas were the cities of Vallejo and Napa, California. How strong is a 6.0? How much damage can it do? One local man, Evan Kilkus, used his Phantom 2 Vision + to capture a unique aerial perspective of the most extensively damaged buildings in downtown Napa. Ride along as Evan gets us up close and personal to the crumbling facades, roofs and windows of quake ravaged Napa, California!
