Outstanding footage!  Loved the rise over the ridge and then the view into the valley below.  Great job.

Fantastic footage! looks really nice, although you seem to have a slightly blurry right bottom corner in your footage?

Spectacular! Thanks for sharing.  I took my Mavic to the Spanish Pyrenees last week and due to the tremendous flight restrictions for UAVs in Spain, I'm had to leave it in its case.  Very jealous.

Nice video. I guess I would be afraid that the Mavic could suffer a malfunction and looking at the distance that you went, if it fell, wouldn't it be a bummer to try and find it?

Really beautiful footage! I noticed some stuttering when you came in close to the ridge a couple times, is that because of the cold affecting the Mavic, or an issue with YouTube or possibly playback on a phone?

Good eye. It was actually quite warm...+19F. I have flown at -20F . The shutter was my lack of piloting skills enhanced when I sped the footage up on my timeline. Should have left it alone in retrospect.

It can be dangerous in some years. Very low risk right now.

Yes, I have flown in some tough conditions before. Once, I flew around a Lighthouse and if something went wrong I would have lost my Mavic at sea.  I guess you have to take risks for the footage.

Great Vid!  FYI I also did some Mavic flights skiing at about 4K feet.  The KEY lesson I learned ...always film/fly DOWNHILL never uphill from where you are unless you like a 2mile hike to recover your Mavic. Much easier to ski down to it   Fly aways on mountain tops are never a fun experience.

For this flight I put it on auto exposure with .7 EV, WB sunny, Cinelike profile. ND filters do make a difference when it is so bright out.
I did some minor color correction in post, mainly fixed the contrast.
