Nice flight!  Were you taking off and landing from a boat?

Yes. I learnt how to do it myself, there are several videos on YouTube. You just need a lanyard for the RC.

Thanks! And I can tell you that running Beta .300 and the latest DJI GO 4 app I see an improvement in Active tracking. Now it does recognize the vessel as being a boat and it follows much closer then before.

Nice work
So, I see you were launching and recovering from the boat.  How were you launching it and recovering it?  Off the deck or by hand?

Thanks! I do hand launching and recovering. Only once I had someone holding the drone with two hands, otherwise I do it myself like in the video. You need a lanyard for your RC.

Have you had or experienced any cracks on the bird?

Instead of a lanyard neck strap, look into the shoulder harness system. DJI carry their own, Inspire version: https://m.dji.com/product/inspire-remote-strap
Its ergonomic design ease the pressure to the cervical vertebra. Useful to off-load the weight of the remote controller when flying for long periods of time so that you can focus on enjoying the flight.

That's which one I have now.

It's much more comfortable, especially helpful for me, with a heavier device on the RC.
Spares me from unnecessary pain, that has plagued me, having arthritis in my neck, inflicting three places.

For those without any vertebrae problems ... a simple neck strap is far better design and convenient than the 'baby-harness' DJI as in RHP's video !

For those who want convenience and weight carried another way ... then get a tray ... which then keeps RC level and sorted without the falling over than straps do.

Here's a cheap tray that is easily modified :
