It’s become clear to me that the drone hobby is not really about flying, it’s mostly about video editing, which I’ve never done. So after beating my head against a Blender, I ended up using OpenShot for now. I know I have a long way to go but here’s my first stab at it.
I finally gave in and bought a drone. I think the Mavic Mini has opened up the technology to be used casually, and here’s my proof. After reading a bit and playing with it indoors (it was raining), I went outside as soon as the rain let up and made my first few videos.
