Made it past the 1000 meter mark for the first time.

I've been really quite timid, expanding my confidence in the reliability of the Mavic. It blows away anything I had in the analog R/C world by so much it's hard to believe it's real.

The green flight path in the KML from HealthyDrones shows that the signal was so good I should never have worried about it. Next challenge: two kilometers away. No lollygaggin', gotta fly at a good clip to get that far out and back before the battery alarms.
 
I picked that spot for its unusually large unbroken layout of rice fields. In the spring once they're flooded and planted I will return. Flat space without buildings is quite rare in mountainous Japan.

Note the two high-tension power lines through here. Those are 80m - 150m high.
 
Ah, beautiful Japan, I had the honour to go there a number of times, that explains the precision layout..
