    I have a shoot coming up and the client has asked for a shot where we fly straight along a straight line as far as possible (500m or so) towards a building along the very centre of a private road. The road is also on a hill so the height would need to increase as the copter travels along the straight line. Can anyone give me some advice as to the best way to do this? Is DJI Go enough or is there a better way?

    If you're going to fly just a straight line from Point A to Point B. I would suggest Autoflight Logic, set your height for Point A, set your height for Point B, set your flying speed and fly your mission. The zipline feature works like a charm and gives you the ability to control the camera with the right side joystick or however you like. Once you set the ZipLine the bird will fly itself and you can do whatever you want with the camera.

    Better yet, you can plan your flight in Google Earth and upload it on to your device, preview fly the mission before you ever get to the field.
