Just bought a Mavic Air today. It’s my first drone owned besides a couple Walmart brands. I bought the fly more package. I’m looking to use the drone for some recreational flying, video capture and attempting to capture some of the features my friends and I ride on our mountain bikes. Any tips, suggestions and/or advice for a newbie would be greatly appreciated.

You will need a set of ND filters for quality video and resist the temptation to use a tracking mode to record your mountain bike rides, at least until you watch some of the many crash videos on YT.

Yeah I have no interest in tracking unless it’s in side view and an open area. I’ve watched a lot of video. It’s definitely not capable hardware. Thanks for the advice.

Welcome from Chicago. Check out the links in Mavic Help. Very useful information
when a pilot is new. This info will help you gain knowledge and confidence.
Blue Skies and safe flying to you.
