Jekyll Island drone photos help promote Ga. park

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Jekyll Island is showing off some unique views of its main resort and unspoiled beaches thanks to a photographer and his drone.

Atlanta-based photographer David Fisher has a vacation home on Jekyll Island and for the past few months has experimented with a camera mounted on his remote-controlled mini-drone, which flies on four propellers that act like small helicopter rotors. Fisher says his quad-copter is nothing like a military drone because of its short range and battery life that provides about 25 minutes of flight time.

Still, he's captured some stunning video and images of Jekyll Island's natural areas and attractions, which the Jekyll Island Authority has featured on the state park's website.

Fisher has given the aerial images to Jekyll Island officials for free.
