How Awsome is the MAVIC 2 ?!!!!

A REAL emergency - journalistic Documentary type NIGHT Flight with the Mavic 2.
It handled amazingly - What a drone !

Background:
My neighbour called in a Panic saying there was Fire on the Mountain - Could I whip the drone up and See if it was a threat ?

… Cut a long story short...

NIGHT - Extensive fire - Wind - … and the mountain in flames ...
… Lack of Fire Trucks …


Within a half hour … The Entire Mountain Suburb - were spraying their home hosepipes … but the fire and wind grew...

--- the suburb WhatsApp Community line was flying thru panicked residents (as if it was some space event) … Pictures, Videos, Voice, etc...

SEE FOOTAGE …. of a fire … that almost took out a suburb ….
… SURPRISINGLY - Not one single home Burnt - ...

Amazing community.

Thanks ... all. !!!

Wow- Did that Really Happen?:
Glad to wake up without one house being burnt.

Could have ended differently.

The residents, local community security ie SLCAP, Linksfield school security, Jhb Fire Dep... all worked together to prevent a catastrophe...

Amazing feat. Thank you all
