A soothing FPV flight over the scenic Ammersee lake, Bavaria. The DJI Phantom almost got buried at sea while chasing a paddlesteamer on the lake, due to low voltage. It was too far away to hear the lipo warner but luckily I managed to bring him down last-minute just seconds before he would have crashed right into the lake.

Ammersee (English: Lake Ammer) is a lake in Upper Bavaria, Germany, southwest of Munich between the towns of Herrsching and Dießen am Ammersee. With a surface area of approximately 47 square kilometres, it is the sixth largest lake in Germany. The lake is at an elevation of 520 metres, and has a maximum depth of 81 metres. Like other Bavarian lakes, Ammersee developed as a result of the ice age glaciers melting. Ammersee is fed by the River Ammer, which flows as the Amper out of the lake. Like neighbouring Lake Starnberg, which is similar in size and shape, it is a popular location for watersports.

Ammersee and the Amper are part of the ancient Celtic amber trading route leading to the Brenner Pass. The word Ammer is a 13th-century form of Amper, the Celtic ambra, deriving from the Indo-European ombh-, mbh- “wet, Water”.

Passenger services have operated on the lake since 1879. Today they are operated by the Bayerische Seenschifffahrt company, using a mixture of historic paddle steamers and motor ships.

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.
