I shot this low video over the water yesterday and I thought it was kind of cool!

https://youtu.be/Ic9vDRRL9V0

I put the drone in FPV mode which means the camera moves with the drone (you "lean" into turns) rather than remaining level the whole time, and I thought that was a cool effect.

Anyways, hope you all enjoy!

Yesterday was a beautiful day and a holiday here, so everyone went out on their boats.  I thought it was a great opportunity to get some filming done, and here are some of the results.

It was a calm morning and I was up early so I decided to see what was going on in Halifax Harbour.  I sent my Mini 2 out and caught this Coast Guard vessel sneaking back in!

I took some other shots too, but this is the best one so far.

A couple of good shots today!

I went out specifically to shoot some footage of the two merchant ships and maybe the red Coast Guard ship today, but on my way home I noticed the float barge with another ship on it.  I decided to stop and put the drone in the air again, only to find out that the ship on the barge was the Navy's newest ship!

These ships, known as AOPS vessels are designed to patrol the Arctic region, which is seeing more traffic than ever as climate change keeps the waters free of ice for longer and longer periods.  Here is some info on the AOPS vessels if anyone is interested:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_DeWolf-class_offshore_patrol_vessel

I believe this one is the HMCS William Hall, in case anyone is keeping track!  Also, in the second photo you get to see the Coast Guard Zodiac monitoring things, the three tugs that are putting the barge into position, the pilot boat (tiny one on the left) and the Coast Guard boat and two merchant vessels from the first pic.  It was a busy day in the Bedford Basin today!

Not a bad result considering I don't get out to fly nearly as much as I would like. :woohoo:

You were busy enjoying flying.   :salute:.  Guess I can mention my partners son will be going to Army boot camp in august.  His job will be to fly UAVs.

That's very cool!

The war in Ukraine has certainly proven the value of these things in modern warfare!  Although I am sure the drones he gets to use are going to be radically different from mine!

I saw some micro drones recently.  They are so neat wizzing about and nimble.

Yeah they are very cool, as are racing drones.  Some FPV stuff is really cool too- it's amazing what can be done when you are immersed in it rather than just looking at a screen.

I got my nephews these cheap Amazon drones for Christmas.  They seemed to enjoy them!

They aren't on the same level as my DJI models, but given the number of things they were flown into, it's probably a good thing they weren't higher end models!

For $50 Amazon specials, they seemed to work well enough.
