See if I'm doing this right....

Shot with a first gen Mavic



I have many others, but not uploaded to youtube. And several I need to finish editing. Sadly, several of my favorite clips we shot for other people, so I can't share them.

Edit: the first attempt was no bueno.

NYC
I've been wanting a drone for years, but here in NYC it's difficult to fly anywhere of interest, unless you want to risk having your drone confiscated. I haven't heard any personal reports of this happening, but it is illegal to fly outside of 5 parks that are distant from the fun stuff in the city. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think newer drones can be tracked by the FAA ... but maybe that's conspiracy talk.

I have thought about flying outside of the city, but I really only go out of the city to ride, and even shooting stills can get in the way. I bought a 360 camera (Insta360 One) and that's sort of been my compromise - it's easy to turn on while riding and there are no restrictions on using it. Of course you don't get the height and flight of a drone.

Anyway ... maybe one day I'll have some drone footage to post here. :-)

If you think NYC is bad, you should see the DC area!

I have to drive nearly 30 miles from my house to fly freely. I am in the blue circle centered around DC.

That said, I travel with mine and use it everywhere else. Plus, it is still worth using it outside of the DC restriction zones.
