If you are eager to fly (or a test flight needs to be done), the ‘grassland next door’ is a good choice. It’s not as spectacular as the Bavarian Alps, of course.

The video also demonstrates the differences between 3rd person and first-person view. 3rd person means that the pilot observes the drone from a fixed viewpoint. In first-person view, the realtime video of the attached RV camera is submitted to the pilot’s video goggles -which is almost the same as if the pilot was actually inside the vehicle’s cockpit. This is indispensable if you want to achieve exact, smooth camera movements or follow any moving objects, for example. This wouldn’t be possible without FPV (first-person view).

My Drone Shots

Most of my aerial shots and videos are done from first-person view using Fatshark goggles and the DJI Phantom 2 V2 with the Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal. I am not a fan of the latest "once click" drones with all the built-in smartphone stuff. Digital video submission does not provide the same, smooth experience than analog 5.8GHz submission and suffers from a low framerate and a high latency - which is absolutely deadly for a pleasant FPV experience.
