Mavic drone footage in Mekong Delta – floating markets of Vietnam


My Mekong Delta tour starts with a cruise along the Mekong river in Vietnam from Can Tho into the Mekong Delta Vietnam.

I have taken a Mekong Delta day trip from Can Tho, and after seeing the larger Can Tho floating market of the Mekong Delta we cruise onto smaller Mekong river tributaries and see some smaller floating markets and I fly my new UAV drone. My Vietnam travel drone is a Mavic Air drone. I think this will be the perfect opportunity to get some mavic drone footage in Vietnam. I do get some UAV drone footage of the floating markets in the Mekong Delta but I also get some UAV drone footage of my mavic drone crash as I try to land my mavic drone on a moving boat on the Mekong river.

I continue my Mekong Delta Vietnam tour with a visit to see how rice noodles are made, and then we start to leave more of the touristy Vietnam behind as we head more into the backwaters of the Mekong Delta for the second part of the Mekong Delta day trip.

    Drones & water don't mix. Nearly ALL Vloggers damage their drones in water.

    You're drone skills are superb! I could never be brave enough to fly from a boat. The rice noodle making looks pretty labor intensive. Continue enjoying your travels and thanks for bringing us along.

    Hey Simon! Great video as always! How are you enjoying your new Mavic? Hopefully it's okay after the swat down – It's super tough to land it on moving objects, I rarely take it off from boats anymore after an accident. You did a great job shooting at that time with the colors! Keep it up as always…
