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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
