No, no zoom. As I get better I'll fly lower, which is where all the danger is.
And I didn't see those kids on the basketball court until I viewed the video, or I think I would have buzzed the court.
Oh haha. That would have been hilarious.
Good to know. Just wondering about my odds of trashing this thing without prior experience.
They are actually shockingly easy to fly. Basically, if you get higher than the surrounding buildings, trees, and power lines, you CAN'T crash it, because there's nothing to crash into. And with mine, you just press a button to return to home and it comes back and lands itself in the same place it took off from automatically - you don't even have to manually land the thing.
Went to the park with my wife and grandson and flew it around. Nothing spectacular about this video, I was mainly practicing getting lower to the ground. That's where all the danger is (trees) so I need more practice.
Do you get the Smithsonian channel at your house? The reason I ask is they have a show called Aerial America, which you can go to their website and see also, anyway, while they often use a helicopter, they also frequently use drones for their shots. Might give you some ideas going forward when you make videos, and it's a pretty interesting show if you're into that type of stuff.

Best use for them yet. Beats fast car chases in heavy traffic risking high collateral damage too.
Here's more for anyone that is interested:
@oxrageous @Zambo Not sure if you want to get in the business but it's a booming...
I just talked to a friend who is planning his wedding and he booked a drone guy for his ceremony for $850. So for any people wanting to see money from their drones this could be another option. People lose all reason when it comes to weddings.
Yup. The photographer we use regularly will add arial stills for $225 and video for $325 a pop.
If I buy another one anytime soon it'll probably be this one. http://store.dji.com/product/mavic-...sc_lid=52463865&sc_uid=MJsHRdFnph#/?_k=5urgna
Got some beach drone footage today. That beach house is something like 30,000 SF, by the way.
Actually, it's 50,000 square feet. http://homesoftherich.net/2010/01/i...bert-eustaces-50000-square-foot-mega-mansion/
I'm surprised they didn't have anti-air defense and take your peeping tom @ss out!
DJI just came out with a new ultra portable drone called the Mavic Air. Significantly smaller even than the Mavic Pro, but still handles decent wind gusts and can fly 40mph. It has all the new fancy tracking modes and networking which allows it to fly a couple miles away without losing signal. I preordered one and just got notified that it shipped. Hopefully I'll get it this week.
This guy is a little geeky but its a pretty cool demo of the machine.
