Default VIR Drone with FCA

I was instructing with Ferrari Club this week and shot the video below. This is completely random clips, thrown together hastily. I was instructing also, so I didn't have a lot of time to shoot.

There are also some driving clips in my account if anyone is interested. ST3 trim on old tires, low hp Corvette these days

That is really cool footage. Does the track mandate a certain altitude the drone has to be at?

official policy is +100' but they have let me fly pretty freely once they built some trust. It's the insurance and licensing that makes it hard for most.
