Don't have one, but some people like to fly them over the lake when i'm fishing. I try to hit them when I cast.

Thanks for that useful information. I will fly higher over fisherman for now on. Lots of aggression toward drones! For some reason when people see them they think there being spied on. Like the world is really interested in what there doing lol. Well keep casting and I hope you catch one. One less drone spying on ya.

I’ve wanted a mavic pro for awhile now but pretty expensive so I just put $ into fish and drool over the mavics.

I won a large drone from a store once. I liked it but I was not very good at flying it. It got wrecked several times!

XJ470 distance check. Went out to 540m before the video got fuzzy. Controls were fine though.

I started training on a DJI Tello.

Will start flying one of these soon.

It is an older custom unit with a fixed GoPro and FLIR.

The sister unit has a GoPro on a gimbal but no FLIR.

Hopefully by next year, we will have 2 DJI Matrice units with dual gimbals.

I have a DJI Mavic Pro as well, but haven't gotten many chances to fly it just yet, because the weather this year has either been swelteringly hot ("it's too hot outside to hang around in the sun and fly a drone, I'll have to do it later this week...") or cold and cloudy where the colours of the landscape aren't brought out as much as they are in the sun. Now that the leaves are changing to brilliant reds and oranges, I'm hoping that there will be just one day where it's suitable drone weather, but it's calling for rain and cold for a week straight so we'll have to see... :/

Nice I’ve got a Mavic Air. Just had it in Aruba. Great toy still learning how to fly .

If you guys want to learn how to fly a quad and not crash your $$$$$ quad/drone, try a Hubsan X4. $25 and flies very well. Small enough to fly indoors if the weather isn't good.

When I said learning to fly I really mean getting the guts to let it get out of sight. It really flys easy it’s just flying it when you can’t see it and your using the iPhone to follow it. Furthest I flown is 2000 ft away. The thing goes a mile and a half. The mavic pro goes almost 4 miles. Takes some time to get used to it.lol.

The furthest I have flown my mavic pro is 4 kilometers (I don’t know what that is in miles, it is set in meters) and the highest I have flown it is 1600ft

What brand you got because it does take some clear shots better than some cameras.

The air is about a 1000. An older pro would be 600-1000. The new pro is about 1600.

Stunning shots ….they're trying to bring a law out here now about how far and high they can go because they're being used at airports

Unfortunately the laws will be in place in Canada on June 1. Anything over 250g and you need a license. I currently have five that I have built for freestyle. They are fun.
