    I think one important aspect for using a drone could be getting a view of those inside bends in a wash or checking if it looks dug up before you take a drywasher ect in..I have accidentally let mine drift out of sight a couple times, that return home feature came in really handy.You grow a hugh fondness for the little guy when it always returns after being lost☺ stay safe in this ridicules heat my friend.

    Good video. Been using the mavic air 2 for a few months also, love it. . I use it to make videos and spot old timer diggings, contact zones, quartz outcropping, ect. Have also been using different drones for a few years… come in handy big time.

    What’s the dome shaped nose cone on that drone? Looks like a way to give squirrels a rid😅👍

    I currently don’t own a drone but the videos are awesome , maybe map out washes and discover hidden ones. The line of sight thing would really limit what you could do. Here in Ga I prospect creeks and river and I would love to fly over one while it was flooding. Kenny

    A Drone can make a video isn’t that the same as finding gold?😊

    Hmm, if I used one maybe I would use it in conjunction with my topo map to make notes on how a ravine or wash seems to flow. Maybe if I find something interesting fly the drone in again to find the best way in or study more interesting areas. Definitely could see it’s usefulness on the beach. ☺ Just saying

    Personally I think a lot of rules are just examples of the government being over bearing and over controlling. Like in some areas you technically could see for miles if you had a spotting scope so technically it’s within line of sight. If you personally have to be so close to a drone that’s pretty lame. There’s a mountain that’s in centra Utah and you can see Colorado some days hundreds of miles away. It’d be so cool to video at least from the mountain top to the desert ten miles away. I don’t see why it’s illegal. It makes sense to have drones illegal when there’s a forest fire and helicopters or maybe if you’re by an Airport but when you’re an hour away from any town and some days you may see nobody it makes ya wonder why have some laws that aren’t protecting nobody cause there’s nobody there. The chances of a drone falling out of the sky and hitting someone is like lightning striking somebody haha. My cousin on horse was twenty feet away from a lightening strike so I suppose it could happen but it’s like very rare.

    The other thing that upsets me if public land is owned by we the people why is off limits in many areas? Why is it illegal to even fly a drone in the Grand Canyon? It really makes me wish the federal government was smaller and states were more powerful like they used to be. Drones seem like a cool hobby but I’d probably end up breaking the law haha cause I’d want to video some cool stretches of land that would end up being out of sight unless if I could legally use a spotting scope.
