That's pretty cool kevin. There are a few guys i work with that fly the dgi mavic's and mavic 2's. My buddy ray took a bunch of cool footage from his mavic 2 when we were in germany visiting castles. I have never flown the spark but the mavic's are really easy to fly just using your phone and the controller.

I was tempted with the Mavic Air. Anything above the Spark & it's gonna be noisier & all the more $$. I still cannot believe how the remote on the Spark can really reach out. Here's a video from this morning on my first mile ( & then some ....) flight out. I could have gone two miles easily but the schools got in the way. The battery is only good for a good 15 min flight, so that's the draw back. My biggest fear ( & it does happen, is that I'll loose video signal for a second or two at times when I'm way out. I think that's because there might be something blocking the signal, though I'm over 300 ft up at times. I dunno. Fortunately, the drone is smarter than the pilot, & knows what to do. There is a " GPS " mode, which you fly slower & your movement is more more precise. Then there is the " Sport Mode " which you fly at almost 30mph & your movement is jerky. I'm learning. For those who know anything about Longaberger Baskets, you can see the abandoned corporate basket building off in the upper left hand distance. My wife use to work there. I originally thought it would be cool to fly through the handles, but " Kilroy" was already there.

I had one fully charged battery left that I wanted to discharge before leaving tomorrow for the ocean. I was out flying over some trees to measure the height of them this evening, that I want to be able to pass over , using a new drone that's coming when I get back home & I spied this walking out of the woods. My new drone , that I'm super excited over, is because I can program it to fly autonomously anywhere at any height and angle for close to 30 min and hopefully get better views of deer. I'm already in the process of mapping out flight plans for nearby fields , while I'll be able to sit in the drive & wait for it to come back home. Stay tuned !
