UAV (Drone) Flying Nance Canyon

Here is my first video (3:43) flying in Nance Canyon with the Mavic Pro 2 drone (shown below), with Gail as spotter using binoculars. After about 400 feet out, even against a clear sky, the drone is impossible to see unaided.

The video is 4K quality and too big to upload directly, so I have embedded the Youtube video (4K) below the drone photo. Please watch full-screen.

I picked out this spot to fly because the land slopes down rapidly to the west, making obstacle avoidance easy. The entire flight was at a height of only 20 to 30 feet above the take-off point, and I just flew straight out from there. Please enjoy!

Mavic Pro 2 (the tile is 18″ square). Small and quiet, with a gimbal-mounted Hasselblad camera.

it shows up in the pictures...I am a US citizen (born in California), though spent my childhood through high school living primarily in SE Asia, giving me a deep view of both East and West.
