    By chance this afternoon was flying around my house, when suddenly fireworks started about 900 meters away from me. The right thing to do was to point the drone towards the fireworks, start filming, and trying to get closer, keeping a safe distance from the activity.
    Surprise!!!
    I see this light coming fast from under me, and then I noticed! Another drone, just took off to also start filming the fireworks!! Hard to tell what type or brand, for the lights would assume is another phantom (!!!?!).
    I did catch about 5 minutes of the fireworks, but run out of time an got to go back. Video is about 2 minutes long, hope is not boring....
