my flying camera
- Added: 2 months ago
- First very short flight with my new DJI Mavic Pro. Not the smoothest aerial cinematography, but at least I got up and down in one piece. The aircraft was in beginner mode limiting speed, distance, and altitude. All camera settings were on "auto" and I did not use any filters. I initiated flight with the auto takeoff function which lifts the aircraft to a stable hover at 4'. I ascended to 10 meters and hovered for a short time to allow the down facing optical sensors to know exactly where home was. The aircraft landed autonomously with the "return to home" function (almost spot on!). The on board GPS was picking up 16 satellites. Return to home altitude was set at 20 meters. Video was shot in 4K and downscaled to 1080p before uploading. News Theme by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (creativecommons.org/licenses/...)
