Hobby Drones

Wow, loadsamoney! Going to have to sell a kidney to pay that sucker! One of many, many YouTube flyers who couldn't give a damn about safety or the law. Until now that is.

Out and about with the toys this weekend.

Turns out flying a drone from a moving RIB is pretty hard.

These are stills from video.

All from my Mavic Mini - the first is poking up out of a temperature inversion on Skye last September - the others are from early June piloted from Spike Island on the Mersey

Can’t you tether it (electronically) to follow the RIB? I’m sure my DJI can do that and it’s ancient.
Yeah it does that but the results are a bit hit or miss.

It tends to rely more on pointing the camera at the object than actually following it. Also I don’t think it works in sport mode (a necessity when going this fast).

At the speeds we were doing and over water, I thought it best to concentrate on actually flying it. No room for mistakes here and also no return to home point if it loses contact with the controller (not using a GPS RTH point as that would be in the ogin as soon as the boat moved).

had a search at the weekend so put together a few of the more decent shots on reviewing the footage (no lineing up for the perfect angle etc when your searching) this is with the mavic 2 zoom
