    Ocean Cleanup - Sailing Short

    Hey ya'll, Here are a few brief clips of the S/V Kwai under sail as we collected marine debris from the North Pacific Gyre. The debris included discarded nets and random plastic bits, over 40 tons for the voyage. I used a Mavic 2 Pro on this mission. Enjoy!

    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...

    Magnetic interference in a vessel

    Hi all, Rockie pilot here from Barcelona. I'm sailing in a research vessel (full of metal and electronic instrumentation) and willing to take some footage with a Mavic Pro. Most of the vessel locations with enough clearence to take off show magnetic interference warning, but I found a spot...

    Landing Mavic pro on boat netting with propeller guards

    Hi, I am experimenting with Mavic Pro on a boat using a wide-flat netting and having DJI propeller guards fitted to Mavic. The proof of concept was to land and launch the Mavic from the boat netting with the downward sensors switched off. The netting helps to cushion off the roll, heave and...

    Launch from a moving ship?

    Hi there, With models like the Phantom, I've once read that you could launch the drone from a moving ship if you set it to Atti mode instead of GPS, to avoid the drone hovering away. I was wondering, would such a thing be possible to achieve with the Mavic Air? I recall it doesn't have an Atti...

    Is it legal and ethical to fly near firefighters in a case like this?

    I live right next to this marina. I could have sent my Mavic out to shoot this fire, but thought it might be a distraction or even illegal. (This isn't like a massive wildfire with an NFZ obviously) I am still new to the hobby and trying to learn the law and what's ethical. I have no real...

    First flight at NJ lake with Mavic Pro (Active Track & Boat)

    Any feedback will be appreciated :) This is my first time flying the drone over the lake (I got it last week), as well as using active track with a boat! This is also my first drone video edit, how did you guys like it (especially with being synched to the music?) Thanks :D

    Norway: Firmware .500 Dlog and polarpro cinema 8ND

    From a trip with the family in a small town called Bud in Norway. Had to try out the new firmware .500. The phone battery seem to drain much less now with the new firmware. But on the down side. The live feed has become horrible. The picture is lagging a lot, not smooth at all with all kinds...

    Mavic bit me like a bat out of hell...guess it was my fault

    Three weeks ago I was whale watching in Los Cabos on a small boat. No adequate space for take off/landing, so I decided to do a hand release (not the first time I was doing that, but certainly the first time on a boat with wind and waves). Turned off the downward VPS and left the front...
