Around the house - Trying for a cinematic look with my drone

I was doing this "orbit" move to test the programmability of my brand new Mavic Pro. It picked up a lot of lens flare that gave it a nice cinematic look. Not bad for a drone that cost less than $1K.
It's all about programmability.

When I first got my Mavic Pro back in January 2017, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it, so I spent some time learning basic drone skills. Mostly flying it around and trying not to bump into anything. But this got old pretty quick. Especially since our property is surrounded by some pretty tall trees and you lose sight of the drone if it goes more than a short distance. And I really wasn't turned on by flying the drone through its FPV video link. (Ask me later about the vultures. That was interesting.)

More to come, still working on this.
