Well done Andrew! Some stunning footage of the Coast at it's best - and it proves that you can catch trout in a nor'west downpour.

How is it though, that the two of you are paddling your craft along the lake/ stream and the drone is tracking you - seemingly without you intervening in the footage?

Thanks Andy, they all have pretty advanced tracking features now, you just pop it up, draw a box around the subject you want to track and push GO. The drone will follow you at a set distance / height from above, the side, loop around you etc, all automated and pretty cool! Still experimenting with it. Cheers

AS ANDY SAID - SOME STUNNING FOOTAGE . THE DRONE GIVES A SENSE OF TRANQUILITY TO THESE VIDEOS .
