    Jim encouraged me to post this here, although it was really more training and testing of my gear and technique. Not perfectly smooth, but it's always fun to see like a bird.

    Very relaxing to watch.

    When you made the last turn to head north near the end the sun angle made the propellers visible in the upper left hand corner. Not sure I have ever seen that before.

    Alan, that happens when the craft is moving too fast. I'm learning to eliminate that. I was flying fast since I was just practicing maneuvers. There are flight modes that limit the speed and prevent the visible props, that I use when I am making video that I think I will use.

    Neat - I continue being impressed/fascinated with all of the ways one of these things expands what we get to see/shoot. Still drooling from the sidelines......

    Keep 'em coming :)

    This is fun to watch during the winter when it's snowing outside and colder than a well diggers back end. Surfing in January?

    Thanks for posting it here Jeffrey!

    Even if it's just practice and you are working out kinks, it's a still a very impressive video. And also for any issues it might have, by sharing it here we all can learn together and follow you on this journey.

    Nice work with the sound-track. I assume you got that somewhere else - recorded on another camera the same day on that beach?
