Video shooting on a boat…

Video shooting on a boat… The next day, we were sitting in a motor boat with video equipment, instruments and concert dress. Sitting in the boat, playing and being filmed by the drone alone, making circles around us was the plan! And we did it on a perfect spot in between some tiny islands. Technique makes it possible and you can teach the drone how to fly and film, it will do it alone! But the landing in the boat was quite complicated.
