    I have been enjoying the Mavic a lot and this latest cut is the one I'm most satistifed with. I was flying around and atop the Peak Tower which is one of the most iconic tourist spot in Hong Kong. It was also great fun and scary chasing the Trams over tree tops. Hope you like it!

    Thanks! I did change the expo so it's more easy to get that cinematic feel ;)

    Good eye indeed! It's not easy to find a good take off spot without drawing attention yet still can maintain line of sight to fly around the tower. Scouted around for a while to find this spot.

    After getting some feedback I've switched out a clip to make it more flowing with connecting clips. It happened around 53 seconds.

    No I did not, a permit is required if you are paid to fly or if the drone is over 7KG. I did take a class to learn about the basics.
