    This was my 3rd proper flight and the first time over water.

    Wasn't as scary as I thought, maybe I have the confidence now.

    This was at Grafham Water, Cambridgeshire in the UK:

    Nice! I love flying over water. I understand you apprehension. My first time over water, I stayed within 5 feet of the bank. Ha. "Your" lake is beautiful! I can actually see in the water! The visibility in ours is about 10 inches. Your video editing is good. Video is the right length and good timing on the cuts. As an instructor once taught me, "Edit to the music, not the other way around." (Of course with a feature film, you can direct the orchestra to play to the film).

    When you get confident, try a long Litchi mission over water. I did a 2.5 mile one a few months ago. 90% of the flight was over water. A bit netve-wracking but a good confidence boost when it was over.
