So, the weather seems to be nice for the moment and I have to get used to flying the drone before I really have to know how to fly it (big summer trip for example). Having said that I took the opportunity to get out to the small ghost town of Arena to give my freestyle flying ability a test run so to speak. Once I have a feeling that I am getting pretty thorough with this skill I will look into the preset settings on the drone like waypoint flight and so on for the videos to look very smooth and have a professional feel to them. For now though it is all about getting used to the controls. So, todays video upload will obviously be a little choppy but should be pretty impressive for a first run.
I will put up a teaser trailer on both this site in the DJI Mavic Pro - drone album and also in the website Facebook page as well. however, the full length video will be in our YouTube channel for everyone to see (you can get to that page by clicking the link at the top of all the pages in this website). I will do the same with future drone videos as well so everyone has an idea what we will be doing with this new feature of ours later on.
Arena, as some may realize, is a past adventure for us with the cameras and I thought it would be an interesting site for practicing my skills. There is little for distractions or obstacles to get in the way and it is also within close proximity to the Bismarck area so it should do nicely when I feel like getting some flying time in.
I hope you all enjoy the video and keep a look out on future videos in these before mentioned areas earlier in this post. Have a great day...
