    Standing on the beach at daybreak. I didn't want to get sand into my P3S.

    You apparently have VERY long legs.

    I hand catch about 90% of the time.

    I guess that you are popular in the supermarket for helping get things off the top shelf ;)

    Same here, not a good video to show to demonstrate hand catching. If you're going to be using the drones camera to demonstrate this, it at least needs to be facing towards you, IMO.

    Like those guys at the circus that wear stilts and super long pants.

    I never intended to make a video showing how to hand-catch. When I reviewed this video, I discovered the long shadow and thought it looked interesting. That's all.

    Whatever you did, I wouldn't have done it so close to the table thing with the structure extending up to or above the height at which you caught the drone.
