Ludicrous Mode flight over Baton Rouge

JD flies his Autel Robotics EVO II 6K Pro drone in Ludicrous speed mode for the first time ever (see the movie "Spaceballs" for the derivation of 'Ludicrous" mode). He discovers that Obstacle Avoidance now stays active in Ludicrous mode (it used to automatically shut off in that mode), and he achieves a 41+ mph top speed. Flown 6/23/2022 in Baton Rouge, LA

4K video edited with Cyberlink PowerDirector 365®, with background music by Pinnacle Studio 25 Scorefitter®.

JD spent a few minutes of Father's Day in 2022 droning the Baton Rouge riverfront with his Autel Robotics EVO II Pro 6K, capturing this 4K video. There was nothing in the way of barge traffic, so it must have been a holiday. It was Juneteenth, too. Even the USS Kidd Museum seemed deserted.

Each year, flags are planted in front of the Louisiana State Capitol Building to commemorate Louisiana's fallen soldiers on Memorial Day Weekend. This year, there are 11,000 of them. Here's 4K drone footage of them, as well as an orbit of the statue of Governor Huey P. Long overlooking the flags. Autel Robotics EVO II 6K Pro.

Yet another trip out to Lake Shadow in the Shenandoah area of Baton Rouge, LA. This one was in May, 2022. It's an Autel Robotics EVO II 6K Pro shooting in 4K. Telemetry rendered and overlayed from an iPad screen recording of the FPV video. Edited with Cyberlink PowerDirector 365, which also provided the music.

Grassy Lake north of the Shenandoah Estates subdivision in Baton Rouge seemed like a good place to orbit JD's Stingray with his Autel Robotics EVO II 6K Pro drone and then see how the lake looked in late winter (3/13/2022). 4K video.
