How high is the drone in some of those shots? Can you still see it from the ground?

That flight was between 250 and 300 ft ~2000ft from the home point, take off. You can't really see it. It's just a tiny dot and you can't hear it either. If you had no idea a drone was over head no way.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

A thread for all things .....Drone

Getting my new drone delivered on Tuesday 1/10/2017. The DJI Mavic Pro.

Drones interest me, kinda why I followed your thread, and I've been trying to decide whether to get one. Worried I wouldn't use it enough to justify it to be honest. But then .... Santa .... just brought me a DJI Mavic Pro!

This definitely isn't an out of the box and fly experience. Obviously have to charge drone & controller but I was very surprised how long it took me to be able to fly. All in all it took about three hours to upgrade firmware (twice), get phone to connect (major issue) and then to calibrate the drone. Once I was finally read to fly, about 60 seconds after I took off I got the low battery warning. So having heard that when the battery is low, it can automatically "Return to Home" I didn't want to be courageous first time out, so I just took a couple of photos and then landed. Couldn't get video to work, or would have video'd the whole flight. So here's an overexposed picture of some of my house and backyard.

Nice work here. The DJI app does take some time to get used to. It has so much in it.

@SMCJB

You gave my enough energy to upload my latest drone video...lol... thanks.

Thanksgiving day 2017 was very windy and I received many flight warnings regarding the conditions. At one point I just landed the craft on the road that runs in front of the house you see in the video and went and retrieved it. That video/flight was 14 min and this video is from the second flight right afterwards. It seems the Mavic split the video into two parts due to its size so the takeoff from this second flight is on that first video not this one.

The Mavic Pro is amazing in that it stays so steady in high winds but you can perceive it swaying in this video due to the wind.

Very nice @Blash

I was surprised how quickly mine charged back up the other day so took it out for another 10 mins later on. It's actually very easy to get the hang of, once you get past the initial few flights. Still had it in beginner mode, and a lot of trees around us, so not an impressive video, otherwise I would post.
