Went to my mates place for our annual work Xmas party.
He has a large property so there was plenty of fun to be had.  Another mate is starting his own Drone business, so brought his Matrice along.

We filmed each other in flight

So this video has it all.  Motorbikes, falls, crashing my spark into a tree and a dog trying to attack Sparky.

Please note the guy falling at 1:22 is sore, but ok...lol

Hope you enjoy

haha...yep..it was a good one.  Too focussed on tracking the kid on the bike.  By the time i saw it it was too late.  I was in sports mode and it takes ages for it to stop.

The drone “looks” fine.  But as the battery was low, I didn’t test fly it aftwards.    So fingers crossed but I think it’s ok. :-)

Great video. Must have been a great day. Interesting contrast between drones in the mutual videoing scene.

Yeah...it was.  But surprisingly,  my spark had much better picture quality than the Matrice (a $20K drone) and his Mavic Pro.      I know these drones are better than mine in every aspect (other than portability, so i’ve told him to check his settings.

Just one of his cameras was 3 times the cost of my Spark.  Lol.

Found out why some of the drone footage is not as clear as others.  My friends Mavic was set to 720 instead of 1080 or 4K.    It’s a shame because the best jump we caught was using the Mavic.
