Finally put together some videos from my recent trip to Greece last month. Some thieves broke into my rental car and stole my osmo mobile half way through my trip. Ended up using the mavic as a handheld stabilizer, didn't work as well as the osmo though. Hope you guys enjoy. It was actually my first time flying a drone, got the hang of it pretty quick except the one time i accidentally took off in Atti mode and drifted into a bush. Totally my mistake but good learning experience. Kind of got vertigo while flying it and was always paranoid it would come crashing down so I would always fly when no one else was around. I would also always switch memory cards with fresh ones in case I lost my drone.

This was in Santorini, they had no drone signs in the main town of Oia. Flew in other places though and even outside the town where those signs weren't posted

This was another Greek island called Zakynthos. Gorgeous place to fly. My Osmo mobile was already stolen here so my cell phone footage wasn't stabilized. I was pretty bummed about not having it here

Nice shots,....and Greece is such an incredible beautiful country with lovely people.
Sorry there was one or two not so lovely.

Question about the Zakyhnthos shot.
What is with the word "cameo" hidding in the bush on 0:41 and which also can be seen on the freezeframe above?

The people there were really nice. I didn't see a single other drone on my travels though.

That island is a beach resort with a private cove on the back of the island. It's called Cameo beach resort. It was still shoulder season when I was there so they were in the middle of sprucing it up for the season.

Cameo beach resort,...in the footage it looks like a watermark

Nice shots, thanks for sharing.  We are going to Greece in July and cannot wait to use MP there.  By the way, Polar Pro makes a little gadget that turns Mavic in handheld cam . . .

Thank you! It's nice there but I wish flying around near the archaeological sites was allowed. I didn't want to fly over them just near them and was told it was a big no no

They're both beautiful islands. I wish I had more time, I would have went to crete and Mykonos as well. I got some great shots over Meteora but was too scared the monks would call the police so I kept my flights short
