Sonoran Desert riding

The Sonoran Desert of southwest North America is a favorite place. Around 2500 feet elevation the Sonoran gets enough precipitation that it is a garden. The combination of diverse vegetation, and colorful rocks,  gravel, and soil makes it very scenic to ride through.

This was one of the first times I launched from the pad, put it away in my backpack so it was not visible in the flyby, then took it out again and landed.

The POI around the old mill did not go well. I started it with the aircraft pointed away and had difficulty getting it reoriented while perched atop the mill in full riding armor. Only some of the footage was usable.

The key seems to be setting the POI radius by backing away from the center point. This keeps the aircraft aimed at the POI. Seems very obvious but it has taken me awhile to figure out.

As usual, click the gear icon for higher resolution. If you have enough bandwidth it will look much better.

I miss it there. Used to take trips up to Mt. Lemmon often. Would go camp by the hot springs and take the motocross bike. Nice vid.

It would be interesting to make some shots using "Active Track" and "Follow Me" intelligent flight modes, while riding.

That first shot (at the little pool) looks like far too much green stuff in the water (not sure how you call them in En)
But nice video

It is a watering trough for cattle with a lot of algae in it. I did not see any cattle in the area but maybe they are there at other times. Thank you.

Algae indeed. Does not seem too healthy to me ;)
You're welcome
