Just thought some of you may appreciate the intro on this video.  I guess you could call it 'Threading the Needle' w/ the DJI Spark.  A little risky but was certainly fun!

Thank you...Yeah, I thought the shot would look good if I could nail it.  Was a little touch and go there will a slight breeze but pulled it off.

Glad you liked.  Just be careful and watch you phone warnings as depending on the size of the bridge and it's makeup you may get some signal interference especially when flying underneath a large steel/metal object.

Really nice! Did you experience any compass errors with all that metal in the train bridge?

Nice video, especially liked that flight thru the bridge, how's that went, got some errors? Wanted myself to fly under metal bridge, but felt some insecure about it.

Nice shot so if I fly under a bridge it will not interfere with my spark flight as I go under ???

Let's just say you WILL probably get interference when flying under a bridge.  I got away with it here because the bridge was porous and had a lot of open areas around and under it.  You WILL normally get interference.  Just be warned....I tested this bridge out previously and knew I could get away with it.

I don't recommend trying this....you'll normally get interference.  Oh, and it could through off your compass too.  Again, I got lucky with this location and bridge.

Nice video, I don’t recommend any of the guys who complain about compass errors try this. Hehe.

Was obstacle avoidance off? I'm sure I saw a vid where a guy lost his drone in a canal attempting to fly under a bridge.  It flew upwards (having sensed the obstacle) touched the underside of the bridge - and ditched in the drink.
It put me off trying it. You've changed my mind!

Actually, obstacle avoidance was NOT off.  I probably should have turned it off.

Very nice and I am thinking about Adobe Premiere Pro also to learn.
Were you using tripod mode or just going easy on the sticks?

Just taking it nice and easy.  Honestly Tripod mode is just a little to slow for my taste.  I like to control the speed with the stick.
