This was my first time, and here is some learning that I can share. But first, let me talk about drones at Tempelhof.
The south part of Tempelhof, between the train tracks of the Ringbahn and one of the landing strips, is outside of the Enhanced Warning Zones that surrounds the Reichstag and most of Berlin. And, since there is a lot of space available, this area is one of the easiest ones to fly in town.
This is especially true if you go there early in the morning or late on the weekdays. These are times when there are fewer people around, so you can worry less about having trouble with them and the drone. This is one of the reasons why I decided to get to Tempelhof early that day. The other was that I wanted to capture the snow before it melted.
The problem is that it was cold and my fingers were not happy with it. Get some gloves and try to get used to them as much as possible since it will be better to keep your hands warm. Whenever you feel like flying a drone in the cold weather, keep that in mind.
The batteries didn’t last long during the flight from where I was until the aeroplane and, once I got there, I decided to spend some time with pictures. That didn’t help the video and, because of that, I know that I will be at Tempelhof again when it snows.
If you are curious about the video and the pictures here, they were taken with a DJI Mavic Mini 2. I use some camera lens filters to help with brightness and reflection. And don’t forget to check the DJI Geo Zone Map whenever you want to fly your drone.
