I am beginning to feel lied to with regard to the weather. It was 77ºF (25ºC) at Morro Bay today. We didn't have days like today all Summer! That said, it was a perfect day to fly the DJI Air 2S.

Dang you keep on tempting me into going drone shopping.

FWIW, what would you buy today if you had to do it all over (& why)?

Likewise, what would you consider/recommend for something that's
also focused on being sufficiently compact for international travel?
Assume a conventional dSLR/equivalent is also in tow for space claim
competition in the carry-on bag.

What a fantastic day! A great clip, and I love your 'Helipad'.
Having sat through about 10 days of rain, looking at a clear sky is very soothing. :-)
Thanks, Mr Duck.

Yet another EXCELLENT production! :-D

I'm sorely tempted too.

Somehow the link isn't working for me... searching at google I found some similar links, like here:
https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65597461

So, judging from the format of the link there, it seems that somehow the underscore in the link got replaced with %20. No idea why.. but the link works in case I swap them back.

The %20 is indicative of a space caused by an auto-wordwrap in a newsreader.

The way to generally prevent that is to manually add caps < > to the URL, such as thusly:

<https://photos.smugmug.com/Air-2-Work-2021/i-g4qL6Ht/0/d530f7d6/1920/Morro_Bay_November_29p-1920.mp4>

This makes the contiguous URL link generally more recognizable to newsreaders, breaking it less often.

I have been having more fun with drone/aerial photography/videography than I thought possible when I first explored the idea as a way to deal with the 2020 COVID lockdown. Since then my good old fashion terrestrial photography has become somewhat neglected. If you have the inclination go for it, I am sure there are some reasonable deals available this sale season.

In my case I would probably still buy the DJI Air 2S I am flying now. It has solid flight characteristics, and has a reasonable 1” sensor which can deliver up to a 5.4K 30fps video, but for the most part I shoot 4K 30fps, or 60fps, and the stills shots are pretty good, with the ability to shoot panos which would be impossible without that “tripod in the sky”. Just bear in mind that this has a fixed f/2.8 aperture so ND filters are a necessary add on. If you go that route I recommend buying the Fly More Combo which adds 2 more batteries, extra props, a battery charge bank, and a usable bag. All available direct from DJI, or B&H, Adorama, or BestBuy.
<https://www.dji.com/air-2s>

There is also the option of buying a used, or refurbished DJI Mavic 2 Pro which has a 1" sensor with the addition of an adjustable aperture.

I am also tempted by the newly released DJI Mavic 3 which has a 4/3 camera and adjustable aperture, but has some issues early adopters are discovering. It seems that many of the features are yet to be activated via firmware update some time in the New Year. From my point of view they released it way too early, especially as this is not an inexpensive drone, and way too expensive to consider as a beginner, or hobbyist drone.

One of your biggest concerns with international travel is going to be how local regulations are going to limit your flying. Currently a sub-250g drone such as the DJI Mini 2, or the Autel Nano+ are going to be your best portable international travel drone options, and are not a bad choice for a first drone. The only issue is I have yet to hear of anybody actually owning, of flying one of the Autel Nano’s, whereas I have only heard good things of the Mini 2, and I will probably buy myself a Mini 2 (or Mini 3 if that is released soon) for my own international travels.

I’m glad you enjoyed that flight around the Bay.
The pad is useful to provide some protection from flying stone damage to the camera.
The weather around here has been too good. We are still trapped in a drought and need rain desperately. We could do with most of the rain you are experiencing.

Good insight on various country regulations. I've also noticed that there's
some places that have instituted drone bans .. IIRC, some places in Africa
(makes sense, to reduce animal harassment and probably poaching) and
in Iceland (not sure if its just near highly tourist-trafficked sites or broader).
I think Rapa Nui (Easter Island) too, although if that's the case then we saw
someone violate it.

Thanks for a "brand that's not DJI" mention; DJI does appear to own much of
the market at present, so its useful to gain insight on other takes.

One of our groups of students are going to build their own drone.
Don't know too much about it other than this is the basic frame they want

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Drone-Frame-Integrated-Quadcopter-Aircraft/dp/B07N67KQTD

and all the other parts currently come to about £300

Wondering how we'll interprete any legal regs but I'm not letting them use it in my lab.

How did "%20" find its way into Savageduck's link in the first place?

I don't see that in the original post/link in my Usenet thread.

Just wondering!

HunterBD brought next idea :
I don't know, but space is one of the 'unsafe' characters in a URI/URL
string. A browser can be 'helpful' in that respect and encode/escape
the offending character(s).

Thanks. Whatever the reason, THIS link is now playing properly in the
three browsers which I've tried. There is a few seconds delay before the
video actually starts:-

For reference the space " " character is 32 in ASCII which converts to 20 in Hex which is what computers prefer for such things.
Not sure why it's %

Yes, I 'know' him - an ex-cop from California - but he has me in his
'Kill File'. :-(

I think that's because I let his name 'slip out' by accident but somehow
it's clearly shown here in this image - taken as a screenshot.

I still have no idea HOW his files were shown there.

By accident? David, you drop names and other personal info on a regular
basis. None of it is 'by accident'. Nice try at rewriting history,
though. I don't think you fooled anyone.

The more recent thread also had some issues for me (as shown in the screenshot
of the error I got), but those issues were not persistent and seem unrelated
to "%20" in the url issue. Sometimes the page loaded ok, sometimes it didn't
(happened multiple times).

The link at the start of this thread *always* fails to load in my desktop pc.. though
it will load on my ipad mini.

Why don't you ask? Oh, that's right, you've been banned there.

One day it might dawn on you that getting yourself banned everywhere
isn't the best approach, but for now I guess you'll have to ask others
to ask questions on your behalf.

I don't have the patience to experiment further. I'm fairly sure though
if I copied the address from my browser address bar and pasted it into a
different browser, the '%20' disappeared. I have no idea how this kind
of thing can happen - but it does!

Here's a screenshot showing what is in the address bar in Firefox (on my
iMac) https://imgur.com/a/xnUXoqf

I had to remove the < ....... > symbols for it to play!

You might like to look me up there and see what I used to talk about.

Perhaps you would also ask WHY the moderators there have given me a
lifetime ban from posting there under my own nym (HunterBD)

I can, of course, sign in with a different Apple ID.
A poster there called 'deggie' told me that doing so is common practice
and a real-life friend was TOLD by Apple Support to do that very thing.

"used to" is exactly right.

Why not just tell him?

But you can't go more than a post or two without revealing yourself.

You appear to be very well informed - but you are not!

Thank you. It's not hard.

No. Look a few lines above, idiot. Instead of suggesting that he ask the
moderators why you've received a lifetime ban, why don't you just tell
him why you've received a lifetime ban? Is it just your nature to send
people the long way around the barn? Are you afraid that you wouldn't be
able to tell him honestly?

That's what I know. You can't help it.

I have no idea why my official Apple ID is rejected.

There's absolutely *no way* that you could "know". You're full of sh*t!

I can help you with that. The reason is that you've earned yourself a
lifetime ban. That ban came after you earned a few short term bans. Is
it starting to come back to you now?

Of course I know you can't go longer than a post or two before you
reveal yourself. Did you think you were more clever than that?

For how long have you been stalking me?
