I thought about the same thing for about 2 minutes and then realized that it really is a waste of time. First of all you have the whole 30 degree limit you have to deal with and second you can do a much better job with a standard camera. The most important thing is; sometimes it is just better to leave all the cameras alone, leave your Mavic on the ground, and experience something with your own eyes with no distractions. The last total eclipse that I ever saw was in 1979 I think, and this one is probably the last one I will ever see in my lifetime. I am sure there will be plenty of pictures and video that someone else has taken that I can look at later, but this one I am going to just sit there and watch it with my own two eyes and enjoy the moment.
