    This video was taken today with my Phantom 2 and GoPro Hero4. The tornado struck Columbia, Mississippi on Dec 23. Sadly, 5 people lost their life and many were injured.

    Sobering footage. Thanks for posting it.
    How high were you flying during the first 4 minutes? Anyone give you any guff during any part of the flight?

    I was up 70 meters at first. Dropped back to 50 meters after that. No guff given or received. I would have liked to gotten footage right after the tornado, but I wanted to be sure to stay out of the way of emergency workers, road crews, and powerline crews.

    The local news aired parts of this clip. They say I flew a "drone".....
