    I was curious if I could do this? Were making a commercial and need some good angles. Has anyone done this?


    thanks

    Danger Danger, plenty of pilots will chime in and say BEWARE, pay close attention, a dark room, bare skin everywhere... Good Luck, if female strippers, please share the video.

    You need good light and a floor with some contrasty features to rely on it being tripod-like indoors.
    The downdraught is considerable and will move anything which can be moved too

    I found object avoidance does not work in low light so keep that in mind as well. If you have enough room to get high enough to avoid prop wash and are accustomed to flying in ATTI mode to compensate for drifting (assuming you won't have GPS indoors), you should be fine. If it's a confined space, practice first with no one else in the room. It's more difficult than it looks when there's low light and none of the "assists" helping to keep the bird steady.

    Osmo with an extension stick would be far more appropriate.

    Agree, same steady video effect without the Knife Edged Blades to worry about. Also, consider the Mavic doesn't record sound

    If really want to use the Mavic, at least buy prop guards and have them installed.

    Make sure it's full of strippers and you upload the footage so we can give you pointers

    I've filmed indoors with Inspire but prop guards are a must and some serious ATTI practice do NOT rely on the visual positioning. Reflective surfaces and strobe lights could cause chaos.


    ... moron flyers need not complain!

    Can't offer any advice as still waiting on my mavic to arrive :-(
    But
    Wow this has got to be number one in the top ten of excuses to wife or girlfriend as to the reasons for being in a strip club :)

    You can film by keeping your Mavic in your hand and walking around. Image will be stabilized. I did it when skiing. Connected via WiFi to launch the record and put my phone in my pocket. It work very well. Also you don't need do deploy the mavic arms to do that.
