I have not seen a lot of aerial to aerial photography and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with filming flying objects with their i1. I posted this video under photo/video also, but I did not get any feedback so I'm thinking I put the post in the wrong place. (thank you Kristoph for the compliment) I'm hoping to get some discussion going regarding this endeavor. If anyone has some input, about safety, videoing, etc, flying objects, I think we could all benefit. Thank you.

Nice job, I really liked your video!

What was the normal winds on top where they were launching from? The Inspire was smooth and clean.

At the strongest part of the day it was about 18kts with gusts up to 23. She was super stable and probably could have handled more, but I landed when it started gusting above 25kts.

How do you communicate with them ? Obviously there's no way of knowing what their next move will be since they are dependend on winds, ect.
Flying this close with an Inspire is is not that easy I tent to believe.
Nice video btw

Thank You. Being a paraglider pilot myself, and having flown countless hours with these pilots, I felt pretty comfortable shooting them with the drone. Also, I have been an rc helicopters pilot for a lot of years and that skill translates directly to piloting a drone. Definitely more to come. Oh, to answer your question about what their next move is: the only time I am in danger of a collision is when the paraglider is coming right at me. So, I only have to anticipate the glider turning towards me or catching a thermal and rising into me. In my head, I am prepared for that to happen. the benefit is that safety is number one, the possible downside is that I'm slow to respond if the glider turns away and I want to follow. Safety first. Happy flying

Wow. Great job and from what I could see you did a very safe job of it. Keeping a good distance and staying at different altitude levels from the fliers.
