Just a quick trip evening/night boating on West Okoboji Lake. I chased the boat for 3 miles with my new Mavic Air and was going about 45 miles per hour the whole time. Great connection, didn't even start to lose reception once with it. Felt totally confident that it wasn't going to disconnect and try to land in the lake.

Thanks Diana. Now that I have the new drone and the weather is Great I'm having trouble finding time to edit my video (hence the short vid today). I've already got days of video shot on the Mavic Air that I haven't edited. I think I should look into this "insomnia" everyone is raving about.

Really nice video.
Great sunset shots.
When you said you chased the boat for 3 miles, was that in one direction or combined round trip?
Thanks for sharing and will be looking forward to seeing more videos.

One direction. I'll try to find my map and post it. I just kept it right behind the boat the whole time. Told the driver that if I yell he may have to stop or circle back (just incase I lose reception) but I didn't. I did have to tell him to stop when the battery got low.

I always tell myself: next year I will work my way through that pile.

Look at the bright side. Maybe you'll break your legs and have plenty of free time to edit. That's why I bought that electric skateboard. Hahaha! JK... kind of.

Yeah, but those miles were over water, making them ''Nautical'' miles...
Which works out to 3.22 miles.

I still no NOTHING about color grading. Do I have to start shooting in manual to use this effectively?

If you are going to color grade you should shoot in D-Log as that get's you the best dynamic range but comes out flat and requires post work but looks the best once graded.
