Hello from Earley - Reading

Hi everyone, my name is Manuel and I’m new to this hobby. I’ve got a DJI mini 2 recently, and I’m loving it! I had good fun the last couple of weeks planning for locations where to shoot firework displays and going out at night flying the drone :smiley:
Then I learnt how to use the DJI app feature to Live Stream and I streamed this to my relatives back in Spain (excuse the spanish commentary :wink: ). Fireworks start at about 8’ 30" (un-edited). Enjoy!


Welcome Manuel. Nice work!
The milkman will be along soon to welcome you properly.

Thanks Barry7.
I started night flying from my garden, gaining confidence that I would not loose the drone. Then for the fireworks, I mostly kept it on top of me, so I could see it’s blinking light. It was fun to see there were ‘more blinking lights’ around at the same time :joy:

My next night flying adventure is to go in town, and shoot markets or Xmas lights :smiley:.


Thanks Jhdee!
