I’m not particularly accomplished at flying a drone for video. I can come up with all kinds of excuses but the sheer beauty of this far outweighs the technical issues. It was a wild time for sure. When the drone flew behind Tindhólmur, I lost all communication with it. I didn’t fly high enough to maintain line of sight for the controller. Thing is, it was about a mile away so I couldn’t see it at all. All I had was the video feed on the controller, which went away once contact was lost. It automatically began to return to home all on its own, which is what it’s supposed to do. And as you can see, it made it back just fine. A little editing and viola, the video below!
Cool, but the best part is missing on the editing floor, cut from memory!
