Bought a drone

Camped at Center Hill lake this weekend, took a few aerial pics before the Turkey Vultures got mad, they are not at all happy to see a small unmanned aircraft

Straight up from the camper


Center Hill Lake


Sligo Resort and Marina around the corner

I have a DJI Mavic Pro and we take it on every camping trip - great fun to have!

DJI Mavic 2 Pro. It's my first drone so I don't have a lot to go on. I know it's super safe to fly, you'd have to want to crash it in certain modes. The camera is amazing, the still pics almost always come out perfect. It shoots in 4k video and it's also capable of some amazing stuff. I'm starting to learn a little about editing videos, that's going to be the hard part.

It has a lot of preset video modes where it will basically fly itself to and around objects you select on the remote control screen.

Here's on of the flight modes called Hyperlapse, a five second video takes 4 minutes of flight time, 200 pics and a gig of memory


This is point of interest, it will fly around a chosen point. Both of these videos are straight off of the camera with zero editing. My editing skills are very basic right now

I don't see how you would regret it. Let me know if you do, i'll give you the link to the kit I bought, you basically get all the extras you'll end up buying any ways for the same price as DJI sells the drone and remote for. They are also an approved DJI seller, if they aren't they won't warranty anything.

Get a Drone !

I have been flying then for several years. I have had/have about 7 of them They are a BLAST!
Now they are almost "idiot" proof............hahaha


My one recommendation is do not buy a toy drone to learn on. Although that sounds like a good idea. If you crash you don't lose much. Well you will crash. And it will take longer to learn.


Learning to fly in "coordinated flight" is very difficult.



Buy a drone with GPS. You get in trouble, you let go of the controls the drone STOPS in midair. Phewwww, regain your composure and try again.



You advance at your own pace. From yanking and banking to real "coordinated flight"


Have FUN!!!!!!!!
