Great footage mate! The music sounds familiar - is that from the DJI editor?

That's great footage yet again. Make me want to go and terrorise the local boatmen in our local harbour, that said, those guys might have a shotgun so perhaps I'll buzz them at an altitude of 400ft  with the ninja propellers fitted.

yes i did catch him. most boats on the lagoon seem to have a max speed around 50km/h more or less - also the navigation channel bends so if the boat has a good head start then i cut the corner and by going straight i catch up to them.
Only 2 boats so far have been faster than my mavic pro (on the lagoon where i fly)

thanks m2wair - i am glad you enjoyed the clip.
what i would give for a set of ninja props.??

it is often quite funny when i have approached from behind the boat - the pilots seem to think it is a strange sound coming from their engine as i can see them keep looking back at their motors.

You did a nice job of keeping the boats in frame at that speed.
Does your MP have one of those Water Recovery devices strapped to it? I would be worried about loosing it in the water from a mishap.

no extra accessories on my drone - yes i do worry about it sometimes, like the time in this clip when the green post (unexpectedly) flashed past my screen.
i appreciate the risk of losing my drone in such situations and your gentle reminder has caused me to reflect on that for quite some time now this evening.

yes, unfortunately a crash over water would be 'game over' - that would be heart breaking.
