I've been asked to video the face of a runner for about 15 seconds (flying as closely as possible to their face to capture their facial expressions) and then gradually rise above and continue to film them passing under me.
AS I'm concerned with trying to manually fly such a mission that is so speed critical, my thought was to create a mission to set the speed , direction, and height.
I'd like to create a mission that begins with a hover at face height for about 15 seconds to allow the runner to get into position. Then fly a backwards mission with the Mavic2 Pro at say 7 or 8 mph and allow the runner to follow the drone and set their pace to match the speed of the drones. That way the runner can pace themselves to a comfortable distance from the drone.
Any thoughts or suggestions to make this the most productive shoot possible?
