Mavic 2 zoom flying practice skills any advice?

Hi All

I’m a bit rusty with my drone flying, had a mavic air for a few months then at the end of last year i bought a mavic 2 zoom.

With the zoom function its an extra dynamic to think about when your flying, it can give you a false sense of being close to things when you have a lot of space, so to get me up to speed i’ve been practising flying around a railway bridge near to where i live, though the sensors are great, they can limit you to bigger spaces, flying backwards through a tunnel when your camera is facing the other way is a challenge.

Have any other members got any flying skills tips for practice?

Have a look at this, then get in touch with one of the nice FPVUK examiners on here and see how you get on ;o)

Hi Chris

I’m a bit more advanced than beginner, i know all this, i am registered, have also had a lot of experience flying fixed wing aircraft.
Flying a drone and trusting the camera, sensors and knowing what can be physically done is where i am trying to get.
I’m not trying to be someone who races, just looking to improve my footage

all the best

Just squares and circles and eights then, nose in, nose out.

Forget the camera is there, do it on sight alone, most things can be fixed in the edit ;o)

Its a bit difficult to see a drone, when your flying through a bridge and out the other side!
Doesnt really compare to just flying in a field with nothing else around!

Well you got through, I am a newbie to this lark but I am having fun. I think as with anything the more you practice the better you get. I like the saying “the more you practice the luckier you get”.

Gary Player ?

Not sure Chris… Maybe
