Yes I have, not much as I’m still learning.

Nice. I’ve considered getting a cheap one to play around with, with a view to getting a much better one in about 18 months.
Do you know what sort of altitude it was at for the beach shot?August 15, 2018 at 8:36 pm #27366
I think I’ve decided on the DJI Spark. I’ve got extensive travel coming up next year and I think the Spark provides the right balance of cost, features and portability for me.August 18, 2018 at 4:34 pm #27380

I went with the Mavic Air, still learning it but it is definitely a great drone. I like the 3-axis stabilised gimbal, great for making smooth video. It has folding arms, this makes it great for fitting in a motorcycle top-box without taking up much of the available space.
I looked at the Spark, but decided that I only needed to save for another two or three weeks to go for the Mavic Air and get 3-axis instead of 2-axis stabilisation. The Mavic Air also has longer flight time, better range and better camera (100MB/s data rate).
I have practised with a cheaper MJX drone (MJX B5W) with no stabilisation, there is a huge difference in the video, with every movement of the drone being translated into tilting seen on the video. The cheaper drone cost about 1/6 as much, but regardless of how good value it is, the Mavic Air is a better drone by a very wide margin.February 7, 2019 at 12:29 pm #28868

Nice, can your wife buy me one too?
Loving some of the drone vids I’ve seen – esp Adv related stuff. Probably only a matter of time before I splash out…
