    Here is a video clip of my first serious flight with the Mavic Pro in Tasmania, Australia. I wasn't impressed when first starting up to be told that I needed to do an update!! I was well out of wi fi and 4G reception but fortunately I could still fly.
    I wanted to get some close up video of the granite rock formations on Mt Cameron, but wasn't game to fully test the obstacle avoidance hardware. I did try it after I got home and it was impressive, so next time I will get even closer.
    I did have a spotter with binnoculars with me and he frequently told me I was too close.
    Weather conditions were not ideal with haze and clouds but the results are ok.

    Thanks, we have been walking this granite range for the last 40 years and it is an amazing place, orchids, geological formations like the Maze, Totem Pole, Cube Rock and many others. We have built a Field Study Center on its warm north slopes and run many outdoor education camps for students in Tasmania, especially Scottsdale High School.
    We even had St Kilda footy team up there to do our Survival Camp, that was the year they won the premiership that year, maybe we should invite them back.

    Awesome footage, but why not remote the buzzing audio track?

    I was actually going to ask about that too. Does the Mavic have a mic or did you dub that in during post?

    Yes I added the Mavic buzz in post, Complete silence is distracting and I didnt want continuous music. Maybe I should reduce the buzz volume slightly.

    Settings were, 4k, 25 frames/sec, sunny whitebalance, auto exposure, camera settings none, - .3 exposure. I suspect colour a bit too saturated and and maybe -1 sharpness would be better.
