Looking south into Chino Canyon, south of Tucson, AZ. Mavic Air 2. 40% to hold down file size. For those who know the area, that rock face to the left is the lower west side of Elephant Head. The truck is parked about 50' from the edge of the Mt. Wrightson Wilderness area.Chino_Canyon_Pano.jpeg

Near Pahrump, NV 2 weeks ago. I just got the Dji mini 2, like my Jeep this thing is more capable than I am. What a great addition to the backcountry. I guess you can't post video clips. Very cool. I like the tracking capability on the Mavic, but this is a good starting point. Seriously adds another dimension to overlanding.

Tested this out today...I have the Dji mini 2 which uses your phone...I have a Samsung phone which uses smartview which mirrors on a TV, using a dedicated wifi link. So in the backcountry where there is no wifi it will still link, Chrome cast and the like needs a full out internet connection. I have an inexpensive TCL 32 inch tv that weighs like 9lbs and is flat. It is smartview compatible. So I went out today, packed the tv up. Linked the drone, and mirrored my phone to the tv. About a 1 second delay between the phone and tv, but not a big deal. Sure was cool having a 32 inch display for the drone flight. It pixelates a little when moving fast. Cool nonetheless, sitting in a tent flying the drone around with a 32 inch display.

Oh I also want to add, using an external Gps setup like the Garmin Glo2 which turns your phone into a Glonass and some of the other services like the Japanese and Italian satellites, works great with drone ops. Usually the phone alone pulls in like 17 GPS Sats, with the Garmin Glo2, I get around 29 Sats.

I have a Glo2 to get better satellite reception in the wild for my tablet running Gaia on a RAM mount in front of the dash. I never thought to use it to boost drone reception. I have the original DJI Mini and assume it would work with that as well?
