This video of G-scale model trains was shot entirely with a DJI Mavic Mini drone. It features many of the Thomas & Friends characters from Bachmann trains, including Thomas The Tank Engine, Emily, Toby, James, and Percy.
This is a big layout using thousands of dollars worth of LGB brand G scale track. People see a video like this and dream of having a model train layout like this, but the truth is that it’s unaffordable for most people. So, don’t get your heart set on Santa bringing you stuff like this for Christmas! But if you are fortunate enough to be able to afford it, the place I suggest you buy it is www.trainworld.com since they have good prices and a huge selection.
Following model trains around my yard with a drone takes some practice, but it can definitely be done! The fact that the yard is huge did make it a little easier because there was some room for errors in flying that way. I managed not to smack the drone in to the block wall fencing!
