Here is a little Edit of this weekend down in Florida, out Boating with Friends. We went to Nixon Sand Bar and then out cruising by Stiltsville in Biscayne Bay. All footage was shot with the Mavic Pro using the Polar Pro Filters Vivid Series ND8PL. The ND8 brings up color to your videos without the need of much post production color correction and the Polarized aspect of the lens gives better glare reduction when shooting over water on sunny days. the follow shots of the boat where done on sports mode to be able to keep up with the boat going at 45 knots (nautical miles /h), at which speed active track does not work.  Hope you all enjoy and hit like and Share if you really liked Thanks for Watching!

Yeah nice. Provides me with good inspiration; though I'm not sure a battery powered pug on the Norfolk Broads in claggy UK weather will compare.

ha! you will be surprised how well the battery powered pug behaves, without a doubt any wind over 20 mph would be a challenge specially if flying over water, lol, sounds like you need a weather proof bird. Thanks for watching and hope you find a good weather window to let your inspiration flow!

Cheers!

There are some really beautiful places to visit in every town in the UK. Just make sure you have someone watching your back and there are no scallywags waiting to steal your drone.

the filter snaps on without any issues of scratching the lens or obstruct gimbal initialization when initiating the mavic (if properly attached). Polar Pro's website does a good job explaining how to properly put on and take off the filters. I really like the quality and the build on their products. hope this info was helpful!

thanks for watching! Fly safe!

When you say you shot the boat follows in sports mode, is that to say that you manually flew the drone yourself following the boat? Just curious, but nice stuff! I love droning around Florida!

Hi, yes for the follow shot i manually flew the drone to get the shots on SPORTS (S) Mode.  the Mavic flies very well and is very precise at high speed on S mode. lots of fun in open spaces. ive seen the shot done with active track as well and it sure looks smooth too, but the boat needs to go slower for active track to keep up with the boat under P mode .

Im glad you liked the shots! Thanks for watching! fly safe!

Great shots but that sure didn't look like  45 knots to me.  More like around 35 at best.......still nice though
