Didn’t have a great experience here which is nothing against Needles. We arrived after long day of driving, settled into campsite, and by the time I went to fly it was getting to be sundown. The link to the youtube video is at the bottom.
Walked out to the point near the Colorado River and set up to fly but the DJI Mavic wanted a firmware update. Ok, last time I did an update it went fast and smooth. Looked like i had good internet cell service on iPhone so I hot-spotted the iPad to the iPhone and started the download.
And waited and waited and waited. Meanwhile the sun crept out from behind the clouds to give me the golden light we crave whilst I waited and waited.
Finally as the sun was setting I could take off.
Was able to take a little video.
