Man Proposes To Long-term Girlfriend Using FPV (First-person View)

In San Diego, California, a man used a drone to propose to his girlfriend. The proposal took place at Sunset Cliffs, a neighborhood in San Diego. It’s here that Kevin Dilliard, 27, proposed to his girlfriend of seven years, Courtney Weigand, 25 using his “quadcopter,” “first-person view” goggles and GoPro.

Standing on the cliffs, Dilliard handed his now-fiancé “first-person view” goggles to see what his GoPro, attached to a quadcopter, was filming 150 feet above the beach.

When she put on the goggles, the drone was hovering over, “Court will you marry me?” written in the sand.

Weigand took off the goggles and saw Dilliard on one knee, holding a ring.

The two weeks Dilliard spent planning the proposal was worth it – she said yes.

I’m sure this is and will be an unforgettable event for Courtney for years to come.
