I saw the Dolphins while at the coast, took the P4 and flew after them. I realised you need a reliable, fully functional Drone especially over water and to follow something. I still cant fly full throttle because of the wobble, unstable effect. When flying back into the wind after the shoot I have to be very careful.  Cetacean I was thinking about you and your work, the Dolphins are a pleasure to watch.

Aloha Francois,

     Bravo!  Mahalo!  Beautiful video!  Sorry to hear you still have the wobble.  Good to see you can still provide beautiful videos that reflect well on your country's amazing environment.

     Now if only we can get a video of the dolphins in those forever tubes at that other beach.  Those are amazing waves.  Then I will be able to die happy!  Mahalo again!  Looking forward to more!

Aloha and Drone On!

A great example of how a drone allows one to get out and enjoy something that would otherwise not be possible. Just some of the hidden secrets in our world.

Awesome and beautiful video!!!!!

Dolphins are such beautiful and intelligent creatures and one of mankind's best friends. I wonder if they actually sensed you were filming them and were showing off. I noticed the one popping up and doing the famous tail ride.

Thanks so much for sharing !!

Aloha Francois,

     Good to see this video back getting views again.  Such a nice area.  With all the P4 developments, does your bird still have the wobble?

Thank you,  Leftyguy, ghutch, tompahr, RHP, etc.                                                                                                                                                 Hello Cetacean, thanks again, the Drone flies very good, but I cant fly full throttle into only a slight breeze, then it begins to move up and down. [wobble]. When I am flying slowly it is perfect, only in full throttle the wobble starts.  Wonder how many Pilots do not notice this. I still fly a lot, only about 80-90% speed for a smooth flight.

Hello db, it is great to hear. You can sent a PM if you want to come in contact. Namibia is a wonderful place for Drone flying and footage.

we will travel to Namibia in July, I had planned to take my Mavic air but I have read that you have to request permission from the authorities. You had a problem at the airport, you requested permission to use the drone

For foreigners you need to apply at least 60 days . You fill out the form, make some screenshots on googlemaps , send a copy of your insurance stated drone is insured incase incident and pay them
1200 nad ( approx 75 euros). You will then receive permission by email. Took me about 3 weeks( mind you i applied just before christmas) . I havnt foundd any reports regarding problems at airport , i cannot imagine why there should be a problem. You always can show them
The permission just in case they asking questions.
