Chasing Gene's Carbon Z Prometheus 1.2m (1080p 60fps) (10 min 47 sec)

I have always wanted to do HD FPV formation videos with planes but have yet to find a satisfactory PnP solution for fixed wing. So I settled for DJI Mavic Pro for its excellent camera/ gimbal/ RF transmission system. After a couple month of getting acclimated to Mavic controls practicing precise tracking. I finally tried flying formation with a plane. Thanks to the smooth flying of the lead pilot, I was able to keep the target mostly in frame. The 40mph top speed of Mavic is quite limiting for fixed wing performance though.
