Hoping I can learn from your feedback. While flying I ran into a issue with someone standing over my camera gear on the groud. I’d like to get your take on how I handled it and what I could have done better.

EDIT: Video removed as I intend to redo it, and make it better. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'd say that you got too close to the ship and maybe it's communication system interfered with signal. Good idea to rth at that point. Maybe I missed that part but was it a MA or MP?

Nice flight.. You should probably change your f gimbal settings so it's not so jerky and more cinematic.. Otherwise great flight..

Thanks for bringing back a few memories. I was living in Manitowoc and photographed the Badger when it first started running again after a period of sitting idle. That would have been in the early 1990s, well before drones, or even digital cameras. I think it was sailing from farther north at that time --- maybe Kewaunee.
