How high. Why? Don't know why is the height relevant. To see the fish or not to disturb them as they might go away.I plan on flying my Spark over water when spawning season gets here for bream. Probably in May. There are generally close to the bank and you can see them good from the air. I figured I would locate them with the drone. I could take off and land from the boat. I could pull up to the bank and fly from there. Wonder how high I should keep the Spark while flying. Any suggestions.
I think a few m would be just right, depends on how big territory you want to catch into the shot. About the noise - don't know how the sound of a drone spreads through the water but generally speaking water diminish any sound. And Spark is quieter than Phantom so this should not be a problem.
Maybe it would be better to turn off the VP sensor although if you fly more than 4 m from the surface it won't be a problem.
For photos of such kind it is almost necessary to use a CP photo filter to eliminate any reflex from the water surface.
