    Can you post your gear please. I know it's on the video, but nice to have for reference.

    I saw your video on youtube. I tried to check out the windsurfer that you used. I am not familiar with that. Can you fill me in on that and what it does and how it works? Basically any info that you can provide me would be great. I appreciate your time and help. I am new to all this.
    One other question. Which Phantom do you feel gets the best distance. Phantom 2 Vision or Phantom 2 GOPRO?

    Yeah, you wont get it out to 5 miles unless it is a one-way flight or you have access to new battery technology that no-one else has seen :D

    Download it, print it out, cut it and stick foil on it. Takes around 15 minutes. ;)

    New P2 user here with just about 10 flights on my belt. Thanks for the video.

    Still waiting for my FPV with IOSD. Flying by sight every time I was very cautious (and nervous) how far I could go but your video showed I could still confidently go much further. However being not able to frame what my gopro is capturing is really frustrating. Hopeful the FPV will arrive early next week:)

    Thanks again for the awesome video. Cheers!
