Readers of this blog have asked us for more video, but we have both been so busy these past months, we have not followed through on those requests. Part of it is because we are at the bottom of the learning curve on using lots of our gear, and we haven’t had the patience to get out the manuals again and read up and put in the hours to learn how to do it. When I logged in to our YouTube Channel, I saw that it was August 22 of last year, almost exactly one year ago, when we posted our last set of boat tour videos and I know it is high time we do a One-Year Later Update.
So, this past week, I decided to get out all the gear and dive back in. Time to learn how to do time-lapse photography on the GoPro, how to navigate in the DJI Fly app, and how to use the handheld gimballed DJI Osmo 2. We really enjoy watching YouTube videos, especially sailing, power boating and travel channels, and the stunning drone shots are often what stand out the most for me. For that reason, I decided to go to work first on becoming an expert drone pilot.
I was curious about how long this would take. This week I found out it takes MUCH longer than I thought.
Great to see your learning curve! Beautiful video. I want one too, but have held off due to the learning curve and limited time. Keep it up and hope you don’t land in the blue water. 🙂
That’s our hope too Elton! (staying out of the water). Being surrounded by water most of the time it is an ever present factor but we’ll do our best to keep the water below and the sky above as we climb the learning curve with our drone. Hope you can start practicing with yours soon too and we’ll start seeing some of your videos as you do.
Thanks so much for sharing…. amazing to get a feeling of the marina and surrounding area…. also… you are a brave camera person !!!
Love it !!!
Thank you for these beautiful viens of the marina. You are so brave
Thanks Joëlle! We both loved hearing from you. Hope we can have you onboard Möbius some day soon??!!
thanks for editing and posting the video, Christine. So, rocks and likely building will block the radio signal.
Do you think trees will interrupt the line of sight signal to the drone?
Hi Richard – Yes, they will. After my experience I’ve spent more time with the manual and on the forums. I learned there are hunters who are using drones to find deer, but if they get their drones down into the tree line, they lose signal like I did.
A good story very well told.
A good movie….
Thanks JP! Christine is a natural story teller and it tends to come out in everything she does from her books to her photos and now drone video. I’m looking forward to more of all the above soon!
Great video, love the ariel views and narration. You had my heart thumping for a while. I could feel your anxiety and temporary fear but I’m glad it all ended well. Not only are you the captain of a boat but also of a flying device. Well done❤️
quite right Anna! Christine is my Captain in life, boats and drones!
