Got my Mini 2 and flew a bit with it today, these things are dang fun! It won't be very useful for motovlogging but I already have a few ideas how to use it for some artistic B-roll footage. It packs into an incredibly small carry case so it's gonna be easy to bring along on the Wing.

However, I think I'm going to love drone exploring! One of my favorite things to do on a bike is explore new roads, I can see myself exploring places from the sky with this drone big time. It's fantastic for aerial photography and still shots.

Mate it could be the size of a small car and still fit on the Wing... :D

I have to get my Mavic Pro fixed - for some raason it isn't getting more than 5 minutes fly time from ANY fully charged battery /

I'm not saying that I crashed it at any point, of course...

Do your batteries need a firmware update? I had a coworker of mine say that his needed one.

A firmware update for batteries? Really? Is this the kind of world we want to live in? :oops:
Afraid so, everything needs a firmware update now. Computers, phones, cameras, cars, fridges, hifi, toothbrushes, vibrators, you name it, it'll have some firmware. A mate of mine even has some posh Dainese D-Air jacket that needs regular firmware updates. Yes, a frickin' jacket!

Even my current crash helmet had to have it's firmware updated when I got it! :D

I bet you could get some great intro/b-roll shots with that drone.
The 4K video quality is impressive on this thing! I'm already planning a trip to a local park this week to shoot some footage so I can edit a drone video together for the fun of it.

Tonight I'm going over my spreadsheet of motovlogs I have planned this year and actively choosing which ones I want some drone footage for. I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this drone. :cool:

The nice thing about the mini, is you can easily toss it in a tank bag, and bring it along. If you find a spot to fly, great, if not, it isn't a big deal that you have to plan how to pack it.

I've already used my mini on 3 vlogs I have recorded, because it is easy to bring along.

I know some of that is in jest but - a jacket? A helmet? WHY?
