    Mini 3 Stranded on shore

    Early at the 70's, a fishing boat named `Elisheva` went out to sea on its workday. The sea was rough, and it wasn't too long before Elisheva sent a distress signal. A rescue ship was sent her way to try and tow her back. But the rescue operation wasn't successful, and the crew of Elisheva was...

    Need advice on settings for launching off a cliff or a boat & flying out over open sea.

    Will be going iceberg hunting in the East Coast & have never flown over open seas. I have flown several times over rapids with my Mavic 2 Pro before I acquired my Mavic 3. Here are a few of my questions: 1. Do I set my RTH to “Smart RTH”. Something tells me I should not set via height...

    Angry people pointing fingers at my drone and taking photos of it

    Today I was filming the beautiful beach of Cala Millor, Mallorca when I saw a public tourist boat was boarding. I Decided I could Active Track it from a distance. There are no laws (that I'm aware of) in Europe against tracking a boat, so I select it in the app, and click Start...

    Air 2 Perspective

    Perspective by Antonis Deligiannis, on Flickr Which way is the boat going? Is it going up or is it going down? Why not going from left to right or from right to left...!? Every answer is wrong and every answer is right,it's just a matter of perspective.

    First boat launch

    Yesterday I went fluke fishing with my brother and some old buddies from the neighborhood off the Atlantic Highlands in New Jersey. I've been fishing on party boats on the Atlantic for years, but this time I packed up my MA2. I did a bit of homework regarding launching from a boat - hand...

    Ships And Other Stuff Around The Bay

    These are some ships and other things I've taken from my Mavic Pro 2 around Tampa Bay. I was mostly concentrating on my transitions with the beat of the music. So...critique away (nicely please)… Safe flying! :-)

    Shrimp Boat Docks

    This is where the shrimp boats dock and do their business in Tampa, Florida. Beautiful place to go, if you're into shrimp boats, or boats in general.

    Hello from Rotterdam

    Not jet a drone owner, but soon to be (next week). I'm a photographer (and carp fisher) in heart and got bitten by the drone virus after having working offshore with some drone flyers. Used the Mavic 2 Zoom a couple times, which was a little challenge while working on a offshore vessel. The...

    Filming a boat/ wakeboarding tips and tricks?

    Interested in trying to get some footage of wakeboarding behind my boat, can anyone recommend the best way to get close to the action? The boat travels at about 35 km/h, I’ve found when I manually fly it I can’t keep a steady/ smooth speed with the joysticks (when the boat hits choppy water...

    Boat or Ship Launch or Take Off Warning

    Here is a cautionary tale for boat take-offs. I had permission to fly my Mavic Pro from the back of a ferry in the Mediterranean. I had hoped to fly around the vessel to practice getting some stills and video while at sea and I was given a clear deck space at the rear of the ship with railings...
