To simplify things, I would start the shot when the drone shadow is on the grass. That's only a few frames that need to be trimmed. Then Content-Aware Fill should be able to get rid of the drone shadow.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I've given it a go but the content aware fill isn't working. I think this is why (the screenshot attached), how do I fix that?

Did you pay attention to the workflow? Trim the footage to the first frame where the shadow is over the lawn, draw a mask around the shadow, animate the mask position to keep the shadow inside the mask, change the mask to subtract to poke a hole in the layer, open the tracking workspace, set a little expansion, make sure you see the entire Content-Aware Fill panel, Click generate the fill. This took me about 6 minutes.

I've done all of that, but in the black box which shows where the generative fill thinks the holes are, I do not have the shape of the mask I made, and yes the mask is on subtract mode.
