I haven't posted on here in a few months but wanted to share a video I made using mainly my Mavic Pro (there are some GoPro shots too). Time and again I am continually impressed with my Mavic Pro and this video is just another example. I flew my Mavic Pro everyday in 20+ mph (some days had gust to the 30s). To get footage of the barrier reef (which is the world's second largest barrier reef) I had to fly directly into the face of strong, steady wind (again, over 20mph) nearly 2 miles out from where I was staying. I used Sport mode to make it happen and never had any issues. Video transmission was excellent, connectivity was strong and the Mavic got to the reef with using only 20% battery. I had plenty of juice left to get back in.
Enjoy!

Beautiful video and locations... try to avoid jerky moves and sudden changes in flight path to look more cinematic...

Thanks! Yeah I realized that too, there are a few shots where I made a slight adjustment on the gimbal position, but due to timing of the shot I couldn't cut out the moment. I definitely learned a few things I want to do differently after making this trip.

Thank you! I am really lucky because I (embarrassingly) didn't read the laws around drones in Belize before I flew in from the States. Apparently recreational drones are illegal and you need to get permission through the Belizean government to bring them in/fly them. When I went through Customs in Belize City, they didn't search my camera bag, only my main checked bag. If you Google Belize drone laws, you can file a formal request to the government and pay a fee (of course) to submit an application for bringing a drone into the country. I'm glad it worked out though, the footage I got on a 4k TV is out of this world good. Thanks for watching!

Any news on bringing drones to belize? Is it worth trying to take it or is customs actively looking ? I heard there are no permits for tourists. I got a mavic and wanted to take it to the cayes.
