Default Video of C5Z using Xiaomi Mi 4K drone

I took the C5Z out the other day to fill up the gas tank, and after I returned, I thought maybe I would try to take some photos of the car before putting it back in the garage. But wait a minute, what about using the drone to take video? Haven't really tried that yet.

So I launched the drone and tried the "orbit mode" function, which allows you to set a center point, then set the radius, height, speed, and angel of the camera. I think some of the more expensive drones will do this better by allowing you to basically designate a point of interest, that the drone's camera will always point to. But this more manual process seems to work fairly well, all things considered.

Probably would be more interesting to get the drone down lower and circle the car closer to the ground, but just couldn't do that near my garage and with trees all around on the other side of where the car was sitting. Maybe one of these days I'll figure out a good spot where I can do something like that to see how it turns out.

Really cool, Rich! The first time I saw the shadow of the drone, I thought it was a bug on my monitor.
When I figured out what it REALLY was I LMAO!
