Only 2nd MA video I've done.  Was wondering from any other pilots that capture sports events, what recommendations you might have on my angles, exposure, etc.  The landscape is pretty desolate and void of colors so I did my best to capture the event and get creative angles to make it somewhat interesting.

Nice video, I think you can add some footage of chasing an object. The angle of overlooking is very good. It can be increased appropriately.

The first thing you can do is avoid flying over people heads, then you could actually try and chase motorbikes from behind from high up but not too high, maybe 10 to 15m from above the ground level with the camera 30 to 45 degrees pointing at the ground with the mavic in sport mode and watching your screen rather than the drone it self to help you keep the subject in the frame.
Just check that at your altitude you are totally free of obstacles otherwise you can't absolutely fly by watching the screen.
In the next months I'll share some info on how to do sport events with consumer drones.
Have fun and fly safe.

I know nothing about filming sporting events.
However I think you did a good job on the footage
