A log of every flight is recorded and maintained. That includes a full GPS
track. It can be helpful if for some reason your drone goes down, and you
need to find it.

Anyway, here is the track of yesterday’s flight along the San Antonio
River
recorded by the DJI Fly app on my iPhone.

Every time you post something about this, that 1000 bucks is sounding
cheaper
and cheaper. Maybe when I have more time on my hands...


I have been having more fun with drone photography/videography since I got
this DJI Mavic Air 2 on a wild hair whim back in May. I just wanted to try
something different that I had never done before. I was prepared to walk away
from it if the novelty wore off, but I am thoroughly hooked.


That’s good to know. This came up when you were considering buying it.

Now I just have to polish up my production values with commentary& muzak.


Hmmmm. Well, there’s always the mute button...

I had one question, though: can the change of direction of the view be done
more smoothly? It seems so abrupt right now. Is there a smoothing function
somewhere in the settings? Or is it just the way you’re working the
controls now?

I have a grand total of 8.03 hours of flight times. A whole 93.5 miles, so I guess my piloting skills, along with my aerial videography skills have room for improvement. ;-)

I'm with you all the way on this, Bill.

I DO have the time - so perhaps I will! ;-)

Is there any specialist drone Usenet group of which you are aware?



I woke this morning from some profound dreaming about drones, thanks to
this thread (and the great video). Can't remember the details though .

Thanks, I think ...

The time has come for you to buy a drone. I recommend the DJI Mavic Air 2 (799) with the Fly more bundle, $988.

You seem to be pretty far along for 8 hours.

A lot easier out in the country though.


I'm fairly sure that *parking right on a road junction* here in the UK
would be a road traffic violation!

Oddly, I don't see that listed here!

"MS10 Leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position"?


There are only a few circumstances that having my car parked where it was, could be considered dangerous.

For starters my car was parked off the actual road, (Nacimiento Lake Drive). The road intersection is Nacimiento Lake Drive and Bee Rock Road, which is the military road which runs between Camp Roberts, and Fort Hunter Liggett, The gates on Bee Rock Road are locked and controlled by the military police.

https://photos.smugmug.com/Air-2-Work/i-57mwsZX/0/32470bd7/X3/screenshot_446-X3.jpg

....and if you are going to cite traffic laws in California try using the California Vehicle Code. Probably the closest cite might be California Vehicle Code - VEH§ 22505 (a) (1)

"(a) The Department of Transportation with respect to highways under its jurisdiction may place signs or markings prohibiting or restricting the stopping, standing,or parking of vehicles, including, but not limited to, vehicles which are six feet or more in height (including any load thereon), in any of the following areas and under the following conditions:
(1) In areas where, in its opinion,stopping,standing,or parking is dangerous to those using the highway or where the stopping, standing,or parking of vehicles would unduly interfere with the free movement of traffic thereon.”

Note: CalTrans doesn’t seem to have placed any "signs or markings prohibiting or restricting the stopping, standing,or parking of vehicles, ...” anywhere near where my car was parked.

No such thing as a traffic violation unless there is a cop present, and
willing to do something about it. I can’t imagine too may cops would be
interested even if there were signs posted. That road looked pretty empty to
me.

It is pretty much off the beaten track for CHP, and they only get there if they have been on a chase, or if they are lost. That section of Nacimiento Lake Drive is in Monterey County, and it is rare to see any Monterey County Sheriff’s patrol on that particular part of the road.

I live South of there in San Luis Obispo County.

The time has come for you to buy a drone. I recommend the DJI Mavic Air 2 (799) with the Fly more bundle, $988.


And... if you don't already have an acceptable "smart phone", you'll need to throw on the costs
associated with that, also.
