Looking good and congrats to the Flirtey people!

Looks like it was a mostly manual flight (i.e. Loiter or PosHold).  Looks like at times the legs vibrate quite a lot - it only seems to happen occasionally perhaps when the vibrations on the frame hit a certain frequency.

Randy, as a member of the Flirtey team, I can assure you that the entire flight was Autonomous from takeoff to landing.  There were a few "Hold" waypoints to include the delivery location and and a few points where we had to potentially hold before proceeding for safety reasons.  On the last flight of this day (not in this video), the pilot did switch to loiter mode to better place the package due to winds blowing the package off target.
