DroneRise – ‘Hacked’ DJI Mavic Pro, Bad idea: capturing an A380 with your drone and more…

Good morning, here are yesterday’s headlines. We had the chance to interview Bartek Bargiel who flew his ‘hacked’ DJI Mavic Pro to help rescue Rick Allen who was presumed dead on Broad Peak. And, we have a drone video from somebody who thought it was a great idea to capture an A380 taking off from Mauritius. Jump right in!

Today’s video

Today’s video is from one of our readers, Van who would like to share a drone video of his hometown Green Bay. He is also looking for some feedback to improve his skills. You can leave tips and constructive feedback in the comments below or on his YouTube page. Personally, I really liked the shot where the sun appears behind what seems to be a giant chimney. For some tips on cinematic drone shots check out this article. The footage below was captured with a DJI Mavic Pro.
