Thanks!  Yes determined the max altitude of the fireworks then made sure to fly above (with a bit of safety margin)

I guess the Mavic makes for a smaller target for the pyrotechnics!

Definitely.  But once I got a gauge of the max altitude and knew I was above it all, became much more confident flying around

Good thing I've got lots of time until july 4th

Did a bit of research on the max altitude "non-pro" fireworks fly, and also asked a local Chinese fireworks seller.  Then I added +100 feet onto the altitude and did a test flight a few hours before midnight and scouted out some early fireworks and made sure I was above it all.

Have to admit to being a bit nervous on the first flight, but once I knew I was ok altitude wise it was a blast!

I was told the max alt for fireworks in this area was about 60-75M (200-250 ft), so I was at about 90-100M (300-325Ft) most the time.

Being a pyro myself, the general rule of thumb is that per every inch the shell is in diameter, the shell will travel approximately 100 feet into the air before it breaks (opens up) so a 3 inch shell will climb to 300 feet, a 4 inch shell 400 feet,  6 inch shell 600 feet. I would NOT reccomend trying this in the United States !!! Safety first! Ken

Try higher ISO, narrower aperture, and shoot from below the firework with an upward angle.
