How do I take off from a moving boat? And, can I change the shortest interval for hyper-lapse mode on the Mavic 2 Pro?
What challenges will drone pilots encounter while taking off from a moving boat? And what are some recommended steps to overcome these challenges?
Our caller for today, Josh from Alaska, regularly sets flight from a commercial fishing vessel. Josh flies a Mavic 2 Pro. What precautions should Josh observe to ensure safe takeoff from a moving boat? Also, will he have to encounter any specific issues as he sets flight over water?
In this show, listeners will learn about the different challenges that Josh will have to deal with as he sets flight. To deal with these issues, we recommend various parameter changes that Josh should make to his Mavic 2 Pro.
