    Watch in 4K if you can.

    Jerome is somewhere on the face, need him to come over and see the HD version to figure out where.

    Tops.

    Can anyone suggest why these cameras just can't pan nice and smoothly? Seems to be lots of blurred motion whenever than pan anything but very slowly.

    There are many options in the advanced settings and good user guides on the net to fine tune and slow the pans, flight controls down etc.
    Like a great DSLR, only as good as the operators knowledge and skill in understanding the equipment.

    This. Most drone footage makes me want to puke. I've slowed the yaw axis down but it gets to a point that it compromises the ability to fly.

    you guys are all a bit spoilt complaining about the panning
    go back 30 years and you would rarely see anything like this except for some dude hanging out the heli window
    BTW I spotted Jerome
    good looking bloke I must say
    bet the ladies turn all gooey over him

    What wind speed can the drone safely fly in and how noisy is it?
    There was one buzzing around filming the slackliners on the big highlines here last weekend (they used it to ferry a small cord 400 meters between buttresses like a cargo copter before attaching the highline to the cord) but man it was annoyingly noisy ---- which would give me the irrits BC.

    Started walking at the valley floor, 1100m, topped out at 3600m, skied the length of the 3rd biggest glacier in France in perfect corn.

    Even with the drone it was impossible to capture the scale.

    Bit tired now.

    Sleeps about 90 but it had only just opened for the spring season, they forgot their eftpos machine so Jérôme carried it up for them, there were 4 groups there so about 16 total. We got our own room which was nice as I forgot the earplugs!!
