For my birthday, my incredible girlfriend got me a DJI Phantom 3 Standard. It's been a lot of fun learning to fly it and use some of its more advanced features. It's also been my first foray into videography. Learning how to vary my shots and cut it to interesting music has been a new, invigorating challenge. 
Taken at Corona del Mar State Beach. Hopefully I didn't disturb anyone's sunbathing!
I had a lot of fun flying above the brownstones and apartment buildings in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I was worried about curious neighbors, but mostly people wanted to learn about the drone and see how it worked. I'm always making friends when I fly!
A couple of tourists saw my drone in Central Park and followed it back to its owner (me) They were hoping to meet Casey Neistat. Sorry to disappoint!
I took my day off and went to Coney Island in Brooklyn. It was a lot of fun showing the Phantom 3 Standard to curious tourists. I also cut in some footage (video and time lapse) from my GoPro Hero 3 Black.
