I had a few hours of free time so I ran down to Byron Glacier to see how the ice caves were before we got too much snow and they get buried from avalanches. One of the caves has really opened up and is easily 40 feet tall from floor to ceiling. After walking up through it I flew my M2P around the glacier for a bit then flew down through the cave. I did loose GPS (no surprise) and the VPS didn't have enough light to work properly but the drone was still very steady and never lost signal with the remote. The more I get this thing out the more I'm impressed with how far the technology has come since they released the first MP.

Cheers and enjoy!

Thank you! I mounted my Insta360 One on the top of my Mavic to also get some 360 video. You can see that video here:

WOW.
They have absolute the best stabilization I have ever seen in a 'consumer' 360 camera.
Very nice!

Good to see.
I had the Samsung Gear 360 for 2 weeks, but sold it again because it was totally unusable.
Now we just need 10K footage to be able to generate full HD views in every direction.

I agree! Hopefully it is coming soon. I had the gear 360 for a bit and I couldn't stand it either. I am quite happy with the insta 360 one though. It even takes decent 360 pictures.
