Gold Prospecting Drone

Gold Prospecting Drone

Using a drone to assist in gold prospecting in California.

Using my Yuneec Typhoon Q 500 G model UAV with a GoPro Hero4 black edition camera shooting in 4K resolution! We are camped out in the southeastern corner of California right next to the open pit American Girl gold mine.

This drone has a range of approximately 2000 feet and with a antenna modifications some say it can go over a mile! But, FAA requires that it only be operated in the visual line of sight and also no higher than 400 feet.

By being able to see the terrain in real time that the drone is flying over this is really a big help when deciding on what areas to investigate for dry washing or gold metal detecting.

To see additional photos taken on this gold prospecting trip and or to get more information on where to purchase this drone at the best possible price be sure to visit our very popular California gold nugget site.
