    Flying while sailing.

    I am starting a sailing adventure this year, sailing to the Solomon Islands. This video is of a recent shakedown cruise and a test of my new spinnaker which I filmed with my MP. Also some epic drone footage of my girl on her SUP on Fraser Island, Australia.

    Dialling in Mavic Air settings ...

    I've only had the Air just over a week and have spent much of my air time so-far slowing down the sticks to my liking for smooth video and fine tuning the camera/video settings. Late evening test flight yesterday with a Pgytech ND4/PL Pro filter, much better results given the lighting conditions...

    Greetings from Tasmania!

    I live on a magical triangle island at the bottom of Australia. With a background in still Photography, I started out flying UAV in 2015. A frustrating start with a Walkera Scout, many repairs eventually taught me enough to build my own F550. It flew better and reliably but it still wasn't the...

    An "Explosion" of Wallabies

    If you've never seen a mob of wallabies (yes, that's what a group of wallabies and kangaroos is called), here's a 360 photo of a group of them foraging in a field outside Cairns, Australia. Looks like a bomb went off and wallaby shrapnel went everywhere. The great thing about the Mavic is that...

    Mavic Air Flymore Combo Unboxed

    Hi guys, I've always found it very apprehensive when flying a drone, people stare at your a lot and sometimes the authorities get a bit annoyed, despite you abiding to all the local drone rules. I think that maybe the Phantom 4 was a too loud, and even then so is the Mavic Pro. (Mavic Platinum...

    Dirt Biking on a Volcano, Mountain Biking in New Zealand, Skiing in Japan - 2017 Drone/Gopro Reel

    This video documents my 2017 in 3 minutes (I know that’s a lot to ask for in the age of decreasing attention spans but it's well worth it I promise!). The year consisted of chasing winters in summer, chasing summers in winter, pursing my passions (obsessions) of bike riding, skiing and general...

    Rookie pilot from The Netherlands

    I recently bought the Mavic Pro. I will (hopefully) use it a lot on a 3 month trip next year to New Zealand (southern Island) and Australia. Due to work and bad weather I only had the chance to fly it a couple of times over here in the Netherlands. Love the sound, the feel and the level of...

    Kilcunda coast, Victoria Australia

    Hi all!! My first video after getting my Mavic Pro a couple of weeks back and learning how to use it. Thought all you northerners with the snow would appreciate a nice 28C day footage :) Recorded in 4K 30fps and edited in Cyberlink PowerDirector 16, I am very new to the editing game so...

    Final trip aboard Lets Live (Learning By Doing Ep 59)

    This is a sailing video but there is some nice footage from my Mavic. I achieved a goal of getting drone footage while sailing solo, it was pretty nerve wracking bring the bird in to land while still sailing though!

    Buying Mavic Overseas

    Hi, I am from Australia and going to NYC at the end of the year for a few weeks holiday. Just by looking at the DJI website in different countries, it is clear that the DJI Mavic Pro on the Australian website ($1600AUD) compared to the US site ($1239AUD) it is clear that the drone is...

    Is there a difference between 1080 and 4K?

    I took this today at 4K, and it took my Macbook Air a long time with lots of fans and bare bones progs running to process. A lot of effort and time. But is it worth it? I can not see hardly any difference between 1080 and 4K. Now it could be my poor eye sight or my low 1080 monitor, but I can...
