Yip Die Kleinrivier Lagoon en Berge naby Hermanus het daai kotrapsie baie mooi gevang, ek hou ook baie van die hoek wat die drone jou afneem! Baie oulik!

Ek het die thumb Sticks afgehaal en die remote/foon setup net so bo in die tank bag in gesit, hy verloor jou as jy by 60-80kmh se kant kom maar overall baie impressed gewees.

Jip very impressive. Now we can put a gun on it and build assassin drones. Once your social credit score goes too low we get get an assassin drone to finish the job. :biggrin:

did the drone 'over-shoot' and 'recover'?

Very nice E2T. Amazing how technology is coming along. Interestingly I've just submitted my PhD on auto drones for examination, the last part of the title is '...A Case Study of South African Enduro Motorcycle Racers' and in it I make some predictions of what the future might hold. They are going to revolutionize coverage of certain sports.

Quite impressive the vid but doing your PhD on the subject of drone  - now that is quite impressive! Would like to read it maar ek dink my kop gaan te plat wees om die groot woorde te verstaan!!  ???
Enviable - both of them!

It just parks itself once it loses you, here is another version where it actually does very well to see me turning underneath it then finds me again before losing sight and hovering

Incredible, and bare in mind this feature I'm using is a good 4 years old already which is archaic in tech terms. The new rage is all about FPV drones as consumers have become well accustomed to seeing normal drone footage now

Hy parkeer homself maar net in die lig en dan kan jy terug vlieg na jouself toe.

Het jy 'n screen voor jou om te kan sien wat die drone sien, maw as hy jou verloor ?

Jou foon dien as die screen, so plug foon in en kan dan monitor asook alle controls stel

Seriously impressive.

Ek het een van daai basic drones, wat jy met handgebare kan beheer.
Harde manier geleer om nie 'n vlieg weg te klap terwyl jy besig is met die storie nie.

Some whale action here at the coast, this is the Mavic "Zoom" which has built in optical zoom that you can control via a finger wheel, which means you can get pretty close shots without having to go close and disturb anything.

Ag moet nou nie lieg nie, dit was toe jou hand iets doen terwyl jou drone toevallig bo jou buurvrou se swembad hover en jou cover toe sumier weggee!
'n vlieg..... oulik uitgedink moet ek se!  :thumleft:

Question Ettienne : is that shallow water swimming or a shart ?

On Quest coming off Gannaga pass, Willy's drone was flown to follow the group down near sunset. He let it go near the top and then whilst I drove, he flew it down the pass shooting the bikes. 600 meters in elevation drop and about 6km later the drone was sending signals that the battery was getting low, however, the bikes and the stting sun was pretty spectacular and needed to be shot.

As Willy finally was bringing the drone down, it lost connection and by default tried to go back to where it started from. It was then that we lost it.

Willy siad that he was certain that though he'd lost control, the last thing he saw before he lost connection was the drone just going straight up to it's starting altitude. This meant that it would've fallen straight down again once the battery gave out.

An hour later of searching, we miraculously found it. It was pretty dmaaged, but less so than one would expect after falling 600m!

This happens quite often, it’s important to always have a “pre takeoff checklist” like any aircraft. Set your RTH home point but more importantly your RTH altitude. If you’re doing tracking from a car then you can set the drone to RTH to the controller instead of where you took off - but you have to lose a few drones to learn 🥶

😂😂 if you’ve ever smelt whales from close then you’d be inclined to think the latter 😂 #shartweek

Gebruik maar external sfx en sit dit na die tyd in, op die KTM video het ek net sound op die phone record en dit gebruik.

It's the MAVIC 2 Zoom,
I've had most of the dji drones over the years from the early Phantom 1/2/4's to the inspire and then the Mavic range, used the mavic pro with the hasselblad originally and after that one got crashed replaced it with the Zoom which I've found to be the best compromise yet in the range, small enough to fit in your tank bag or backpack for most occasions. Even with all the modern safety features you'll inevitably crash them so we tend to replace 1 per year at the current rate (thank you santam business insurance :D )

Sometimes it doesn’t go to plan, this was in sport mode max speed around 80kmh somewhere outside Port Nolloth

The gimbal broke and a few cracked blades but the drone itself is still in perfect condition, after this we replaced the camera with the Zoom unit
