August / September Drone shots

For DerryGoRound, I splurged and bought myself a Mavic Air Drone. I had seen a heap of photos from other big lappers and, as Tanya is the expert photographer, I though I could find my DerryGoRound niche taking drone photos.

It has been lots of fun, although it has been tough finding places where we are allowed to use the drone. I have been using the Open Sky app to make sure I don't break any laws (or cause any accidents).

I haven't crashed it yet, unlike our towing course instructor who was taking some drone footage of us reversing the caravan and crashed his drone into a light pole; maybe he was distracted by our dodgy reversing technique.

Here is a collection of some of my drone images. It's still early days yet, but some nice results and a cool way to document our adventure.

Here we have Fraser Island, various shots of the van, NSW/QLD border at Jennings and some family residents.

I still have so much to learn, including how to take 360 photos and a heap of other features. Once we get west there should be a heap of other opportunities to explore and play.
