    I spent a few months a year on Maui and O'hau.

    I need to get there because last time I drove pork across the Polly and I have been having bad luck since.

    I personally like to fly around the North Shore, but that's because i'm a shy flyer. Don't like to fly with alot of people around me :)

    I'm assuming you will be in Waikiki, so I would fly off the beaches there and go up from there when you drive around the island. Go west from Waikiki and follow the coast line. Diamond head would be your first stop. I've seen plenty of video of people flying at the top there. Once you hike all the way up there, climb on top of the pill box and fly away.

    On the way to the north shore you can probably at all the scenic points.

    Examples are: (you can google these places)
    1. China Wall
    2. Hanauma bay
    3. Makapuu Light house
    4. Makkapuu Beach near sea life park
    5 Chinamans Hat
    6. Tantalus lookout
    7. Pali Look out
    8. Shark coves
    9. Ala Moana Beach near the pier
    10. List goes on.

    Food:
    Must eats imo: (yelp or google location)
    Boots n Kimo- Order full stack of banana mac pancake to share with the table, and then order whatever breakfast you want on the menu.
    Giovanni's shrimp truck.. the on in kahuku. Order the garlic and ask for hot sauce on the side.
    Sushi- Sushi II or Sushi Sasabuni. Need reservations sit at the bar is a must for Sasabuni, else do do it at all.
    I can name much more, but I think you should invest your time on the first 2.

    Have fun here.
