Anybody got one?
Just purchased a DJI Mavic Pro.
First drone,don't know what to expect..
Make sure you do the FAA registration & follow any local ordinances. Pre-programmed flight paths are easier than freestyle shots until you get the hang of it. The "follow me" mode is awesomesauce. Watch out for trees & long hair.
Oh, and you may find operating the controls with your paw gloves on may be tricky...
My buddy has one of those, it's an incredible machine. The low battery RTU feature saved his hide several times.
Thanks for the advice guys...
Been screwing around with it for a couple days,and it's awesome!!!Better than expected...
Here's my second flight.
Still learning so didn't go far,starting to get the hang of it
I find the idea kind of interesting, of just having this mindless drone that obeys all of your commands, and does whatever you say, at least initially, but after a while, I think as a sexual paradigm it gets sorta boring.
Edit: Oh...ooops...that kind!
I work in a call center.. I am a drone...
Mavic's stabilization software is its biggest benefit. Even in winds, it's ultra-steady.
It sure is!!
Regardless of top speed or high winds,you could never tell with the camera..
Weird if I play the vid on the page it's all blurry...Its 720p on the actual YouTube vid..
Ramjet every time I see your name I think.. " car ramrod, say car ramrod!!!"
As long as I get a liter of cola,I'll say car ramrod
Yup the return to home feature saved my ass today..Haha..
Worked like a charm...
As long as there's nothing in the way on the return route.
Me no dumb,I set the return home ceiling at 60m so it would clear all trees/powerlines
Having a started launch point clear of surrounding tree's/obstacles helps too..
Strap a gun to it, go hunting.
Higher we go!!
Use the actual link to get 720p,the thumbnail (at least for me) is 480p
I'm having way too much fun with this thing...
Never tried a drone but I had a helicopter once, couldn't fly the thing to save my life. Now I just race 1:10 and 1:8 scale rc buggies and trucks, not as expensive when a crash them.
I'm a natural flier.
Have yet to crash this thing,way to easy to fly
Logged about 3hrs today..Got up to max height..
those are cool videos
also their is a big drone/RC plane group called flitetest you should try looking into
Is that just outside of drumheller?
Good eye @Crimcyan
East Coulee to be exact,20km East of Drumheller.
I was worried for a second I was gonna be way off. I was up there last summer for a few days after biking at Panorama and just loved that area, I spent hours just climbing around the badlands, driving along the river. Probably one of my favorite spots in alberta.
Was such a nice break from all the flatlands driving up to Edmonton
