Dirty Bird:

I was looking for the post film Litchi flight plan. I missed it. Extravagant cam moves, swoops and turns, the most daring I've seen from you, yet. Cheers.

Keep Smiling,

Augustus

Thanks.  DJI has mercifully modified GEO so stadium NFZs are only in effect during game windows.

Hat's off DJI!

Thank you.  I am very familiar with Baltimore & I also put a lot of time into researching building heights, physically scoping locations for obstructions, & I perform manual RECON flights to gather still more data & to plan shots.  I've had this flight plan sitting here for ages & finally got around to testing it.  I flew it once at increased altitude then a second time as originally conceived.  For the third run here I did some minor altitude adjustments.  Still needs a bit of tweaking but then I'm never fully happy as there is always one thing more to change.  LOL.   I have an extended version of this flight on the drawing board for a P4 with high-capacity battery that extends over 50,000'.

Thanks!  I didn't include the flight plan in the credits because, due to the physical scale of the terrain covered & complexity of the mission, it would have required 3-4 separate screenshots to make it discernible.  In a single screen shot it is too small & jumbled to make sense.  Ill see what I can come up with.

I really had no idea what this video was about and I expected to watch 2-3 minutes to get a feel for it.  But I was compelled to watch the whole thing, and enjoyed every foot of it.  Some good flying, unique moves (those "building wraps" put a quiver in my liver"), and extensive planning.  VERY nice.

Thanks for the info.. One more question..did you keep video feed connection throughout the entire mission?  Amazing footage.. I'm inching towards the Litchi app

You know Dirty Bird I think we're going to have to ban you unless you produce a few screw up's. Very well done as usual although I expected Golden Eye to flash in somewhere along the way.
Keep up the good work DB.

This was recorded with a P3 Standard so I only had RC contact for the first 3500-4500' or so.  Even with the more advanced birds you won't have continuous signal as you are over 2 miles away down among the building.  Other birds will get signal at various points as they pop up above the buildings.

  LOL I hope "Goldeneye" is fixed but we won't know until we take her on a test mission.  You can't tell she is having issues on a solo flight as the gimbal covers up the problem. Her pilot re-flashed the firmware & performed IMU & compass calibrations.  Here's hoping her issues have been corrected.
