  1. Thanks @Lorenzo Candelpergher for bringing such great details and educating everyone on this new journey/challenge. After going through your above detailed post (super impressed) now I think I know nothing about filming, especially about drone shooting. But I'm happy to put my views as per my limited knowledge and experience. Feel free to tweak, suggest or optimize as you find it useful. My corporate experience was to manage the video shoot to highlight companies progress and focus on new stuff/achievements done by different departments. My main role was to liaise with all internal departments and video production company to develop a detailed script and then screenplay to lock it with CEO sign off to start filming and production. Learning from such straight story telling technique which always work to impress and share the progress, I think we can develop this video challenge in 3 different bits to form a fully constructed story telling of an off-road drive. This video will cover and highlight the scenic beauty, fun, thrilling and adventurous side that motivate all of us to be awake so early on Friday morning and coming back for our sand dose every week. If we can power pack this final video within 3 minutes (approx) without the boring details and highlighting the drone filming, angles, cinematic shots and offroad adventure, it will be nice introduction to our off-roading lifestyle with Carnity spirit. Preparation (20%) - 30 - 40 Seconds Cars arriving at meeting point Drivers start deflating and fixing flag Trip lead meeting everyone to check cars Comms check, radio briefing Convoy numbering and move Driving (70%) - 2 Minutes Convoy on the move Start slow - enjoy the beautiful view, serene desert, sunrise, desert track, wildlife, bushes, plants, tree, exotic birds, camels, oryx, gazelles, etc. Build the pace - focus on convoy moving at good speed and everyone enjoying the trail and challenges Doing the swings/rainbow Ridge riding Criss crossing Above story board idea + few more hundreds (lol) Stucks and refusal - show the struggle, challenge and teamwork with safety aspects Play area - Side sloping, hill climb - track and follow cars, aerial view, fly low and overtake shots - This is where we need drone shooting creativity and retakes for A and B roll footage. Ending (10%) - 15 - 20 Seconds Debriefing Feedback Inflation and flag removal Back to tarmac till next Friday

  3. Fantastic teamwork and God's miracle that no one got hurt. Risking so many people lives was insane for piece of metal. Standing on winch line was the most dangerous stuff. Anchoring 20 people on left is another daring act. Safest option: Push the vehicle in ravine and claim the insurance (if possible). Drag all the way uphil without course correction as under body damage is much cheaper than anyone life. Use the power of stuck Jeep as much as possible, which I don't see it in video. Many thanks to @Junaid Sayeed and his friend from Jeepers letting us recover Sheri's Pajero by safely anchoring.

  8. Hi @manoj nair welcome to Carnity and it's off-road club. Being an absolute newbie it is advisable to join on absolute newbie drive first (which you have joined already). After your first absolute newbie drive you can join any newbie drives.

  10. Invincible 5 lane cutters in 1 sec to catch an exit - Biggest fear and threat to all road users. Tailgating you on slow lane when you are cruising on perfect speed limit - 80 on 80 road, 100 on 100 road. When you slow down to stop on orange light, but guy behind you want to play Need For Speed.
  11. Pajero inherently uses 2WD means 100% power goes to rear wheel, while in 4H it shifts 30% in front wheel and 70% in rear wheel. In Gen4 its 33:67. This combo of 4H is very rare unlike other 4x4 - 50:50 or 40:60 split, and this makes 4H more desirable to use on wet road, slippery track, loose gravel and yet consume less fuel and allowing smoother steering than clak clak on u-turns.
