Oh man, I can’t believe you took off and landed in the sand. Use a car mat and save your camera. Hand catch and loose your fingers. Lol Just joking.

I actually mostly hand launch and catch now if I am in a dirty or Dusty situation., I was in such a hurry, I didn't think about the dust. Watching it back now makes me cringe haha. When I am at the beach, over the sand, I never launch it from the sand. I learned that the hard way when I was very young with one of my toy drones.

Usually any drone videos i see here and my own, are never real sharp when I first open them for a few seconds, probably a computer issue. Your video, while very nice, never "sharpened." Did you ave it on a lower res setting? Maybe I'm too critical?

They always look very sharp and nice on my MacBook Pro 15 inch laptop screen. But I can't remember if I uploaded this to YouTube in 4k or not. That usually makes a difference. If you change your YouTube viewing to 1080P or 4K it should be pretty Sharp.

I always use Google Maps but I write down my own instructions and confirm the route via Satellite View. So far, I haven't been lost or run into obstructions that I didn't see in the Satellite View pre-trip. <knock on wood>

That would be nice but my flying usually is pretty random, I don't just fly one course. I fly a lot between little cracks in branches and through tight spaces, so yeah kind of random.

I've been considering buying a mavic air for that purpose. It's tiny so it we'll fit more places, it's light so that if it crashes it won't hurt anyone, it's virtually indestructible, for a drone that is, and it's pretty high quality and fast. So it might be a good option for my more risky flights. The Phantom doesn't quite like them haha!

I was referring to the fact that you ran out of road....or ran into dead-ends.
