Australia has some of the wierdest drone rules almost every national park No drone flights
in spite of being 100s kilometers from anything.
So I found the spot near a river to fly the drone, narrow so a semi circular flight path

Enjoy

Frustrating to be so restricted, I get that.  Nice little spot for a picnic. The river looked tame enough. I notice you've got the gimbal set to FPV mode, giving that tilt on turns. I've not tried that so far. D'you find it easy to manage?

To be honest I don,t know this was flight 10
So the FVP thing is a mystery.
Having said that I change course at times.

The difference between follow and FPV mode on DJI gimbal:
Follow Mode: The gimbal compensates for aircraft Tilt and Pitch to keep video image steady and the horizon horizontal. Good for taking video.
FPV Mode: Camera is locked to Aircraft orientation so video image will tilt when the aircraft rolls.
You seem to have yours set to FPV mode. You can switch between them in the settings menu.

I am pretty sure it is not set on FVP mode but in those early days anything was possible,
I was feeling a little more confident than at the start.
The frustrating thing was there were so many spots I could have flown yet time restraints
seemed to crowd my flying.

Thankyou the creek looked very serine but had a fall to one of Australia's largest lakes Lake Tinaroo
massive in size. the creek was flowing fast eneough that I would have struggled to get back to my launch spot.
The next day I canoed on the lake I canoed there for 3-4 hrs. and it was amazing.
Tinaroo Falls Dam was constructed in 1958 on Barron River. It holds 436 500 mega litres of water, has an average depth of 13 meters and has a surface area of 3360 hectares. The dam wall is mass gravity concrete construction that is 45 meters high, 533 meters long and 35 meters thick at the base. Lake Tinaroo extends 15kms upstream with a shoreline of approximately 210 km.

Yeah, no sense in fighting the currents unless you have to.

Yeah, definitely FPV settings. Otherwise the image would stay level while turning.
Nice river there.

It's sad that there are so many restrictions on national parks. Looks like you found a place though.
