Which drone was it?

Would be interesting to see some kitesurfing drone footage with the drone following the riders at close proximity too...

Mavic Air.

Getting your mates comfortable with the drone being close to them is the trick other wise shoot in 4k and digitally zoom in on the kiter in post production.

One from last summer, can you guess the location? (for legal purposes not mine, I know the rules about flying)....

I thought that I have seen some dumb arse things happen in the Pond, but this takes the cake.

What drone were you using? Clearly not a DJI Phantom or inspire series (if so your gimbal is crap)

Flying FPV? some pretty awesome flying there good reactions. again I dont think a DJI drone could handle the wind and the reaction times.

Good skills mate

I am also a professional Drone operator (I won't mention the law broken.)
