Flying Drones at Altitude

Flying Drones at Altitude

The next video from MONGOLIA is here!! Bet you didn’t think there were massive glaciers in Mongolia eh. Especially ones at 3,500m+

In this video we explore flying drones at altitude, specifically with the Mavic 2 Pro.

We touch on wind, air pressure, altitude sickness & fitness, + changing weather conditions. All extremely important factors when flying at high altitudes.

    Breathtaking location! In more ways than 1

    flew a mavic air in the atacama at around 4500m. No issues with propulsion. There wasn’t much wind at the time though

    what a place to be. been thinking of going to Mongolia for years now. would love to fly the drone with wild horses there

    Although I don’t have a drone (yet), it looks like it performed very well at 3500m. The footage looked incredible! I’ve only been around that altitude a few times when I’ve gone to Colorado.

    Amazing area. I would imagine you use ND filters on the drone. Are there any variable density ND filters that can be remotely changed on the market? I would think that would be a winner winner chicken dinner.πŸΌβœŒοΈπŸ‘πŸ½

    Beautiful location and good info as always. Thanks Greg!

  9. O'Neil Castro on April 8, 2021 at 1:15 am

    I don’t know the max altitude but I flew it at over 5000 meters in Peru and Bolivia, no issues, just have to be careful with the wind as you say. That was with the first Mavic.

    That 24k Golden Light….buttery. I’m ready to go back for another week Gregor, LET’S GO

  12. Debby on April 8, 2021 at 1:29 am

    So beautiful! The landscape is so stunning, nature truly delivers on this one. Thanks for showing this to us!

  13. Brian Bakale on April 8, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Hey Greg, it looked like you had the white balance set to Auto when you showed the shot of your control. Is that typical or do you set it to a fixed white balance? Also do you let your shutter speed vary when using your drone, or do you try to double your frame rate like when shooting other video content?

  14. Paul Thomson Photography on April 8, 2021 at 1:33 am

    Great stuff mate fantastic video and awesome locationπŸ˜€πŸ‘βœŒ

  15. Darren J Spoonley Photography on April 8, 2021 at 1:35 am

    On point once again G

  16. scotty4418 on April 8, 2021 at 1:41 am

    From the short preview BvS in his intro to Mongolia could see your footage was going to be epic and your episode Greg confirmed that. Breathtaking beauty and stunning scenery and hopefully more to come. Just looked at DJI’s website and it suggests maximum operating height is 3.7 miles (5km) πŸ‘

  17. Roman Sudarikov on April 8, 2021 at 1:43 am

    It seems that mavic 2 can handle strong wind quite well. Last week I flew in quite strong wind. I though it was a bit risky but I got nice footage in rerurn. After watcing this this video I think maybe it wasnt so bad as I was thinking. Thank you for a nice video as always!

  18. John Gadsby on April 8, 2021 at 1:43 am

    Hi Greg, great video as always, reference the maximum altitude for the Mavic Pro 2, DJI in the Manual recommends exercising caution above 6000 meters. I guess that’s why it was performing so well at 3000m plus. Keep the epic footage coming.

  19. Mike&Emily Bygrave on April 8, 2021 at 1:44 am

    Keep inspiring and continue making the world, that is just out of reach for the average person, tangible! Cheers

  20. Phil McNamara on April 8, 2021 at 1:45 am

    What a magnificent location. Did you see any "Instagramers" taking selfies? LOL

  21. Brad Zaruba on April 8, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Well done Greg. I really enjoyed this. Great one-two punch with you and Brandon.

  22. Jason Kennedy on April 8, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Great tips and advice as always mate – the flying into wind sounds simple but so easily overlooked…. especially if going for a particular shot. Keep rokin Mongolia bud! Jase

  23. Guy Richard on April 8, 2021 at 1:46 am

    Allo Greg,
    Do you use lens filters on your drone ?
    Cool drone vids πŸ‘Œ
    Merci, βœŒπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  24. Jordon Kuschminder on April 8, 2021 at 1:46 am

    That drone footage starting at 8:12 was just excellent. Made we want much much more! The amazing location is pretty good too.

  25. Chad Hinz on April 8, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Truly awesome footage. Keep on inspiring those of us with a passion for adventure πŸ‘πŸ‘

    I’m surprised neither the Chinese or the Russians shot the drones out of the sky hahaha
