What battery life did you have with cold coming off?

It was only about 45° F. I was in shorts and a T-shirt. I don't remember what the battery life was. I was too focused on not losing it.

Beautiful!  Did you zoom in at post editing? It looks like you are a few feet away, but the mavic shadow looks much farther away.

Wow that is amazing! Were you freaking out a little when it was down in the crevasses? I would have been for sure.

I really like that, you dont normally get to see that kind of footage.

+1 on the watermark
the only thing I might suggest (but i am only a novice). Its hard to keep someones attention for that long. If you were able to take some time to edit out some of the jerkier movements etc you will both improve the quality of the movie and reduce the length to a more watchable duration, resulting in people wanting to watch more of the film?

But thats just being negative, and I want to end it with WOW, I hope I get the chance someday to get my drone up near anything similar.

No, I didn't zoom in. The crevasses are huge and there is no reference for scale. Your mind automatically assumes things are closer and smaller than they really are. The mavic's shadow is the one time your brain has a size reference.

That's pretty awesome! The drone is really the only way anyone could ever get to see some of this stuff.

Also, I'm surprise at how steep the slope of the glacier is.
