Today it was less windy and above all there was sunshine, real sunshine. Therefore, a quick flight until the phone battery was empty. It still needs some practice to be able to estimate how far out you will fly. At first I thought that I had to be over the water already, but that was […]

Not spectacular, but finally some sun. Although it was really very cold and the wind did the rest. Very windy for the small drone, but still quite stable shot, although the copter itself swayed and wobbled precariously in the air.
Test of the automatic release with the DJI. In this case, the Mavic Mini takes a picture every 2 seconds. If you let it slowly rotate around its own axis, you can easily create a 360° panorama from the individual images. The image quality is also not too bad for the small sensor. However, the […]
Yesterday we started a second round of testing in much better conditions. A few shots in Cappel-Neufeld, Berensch and Lüdingworth are not even that bad. Of course the flying has to get a bit better, but the little Mavic is doing really well. No comparison to the Phantom I had 6 years ago. For the […]
First test flight with the Mavic Mini in modest weather (and it was cold to boot). The flight characteristics of the small drone are enormous. Despite icy winds the little Mavic stands very calm in the air. The telephone battery did not like the temperatures at all. After 20 minutes the battery had gone from […]
Day before some forum users want to meet. When I arrived it was very foggy but after 2 hours, some sunshine came through. Two very short flights just to grab some pictures of the scenery.
Early morning in Dorum at Obereversand. Fantastic weather shown in this short video from there. Either I need to get another gimbal which allows balancing horizontal or some software that allows to do that. Just a little bit of wind and the copter tries to steer against which then results in tilted video. Having some problems […]
After 2 tries with the Walkera my distributor exchanged the faulty models to a DJI Phantom 2 Vision. Today I had the chance to try that one out. Although not long tested, I can say that this one should have been my first choice. The built-in camera is a relief compared to the crappy iLook […]
