    Awesome. I and thought watching you guys drive on the wrong side of the road was scary enough. ;-)

    Nicely done. :)

    I wasn't expecting the automated panning, very impressive.
    So it decides orientation when you initiate the mode?

    Very cool indeed. Awesome production value as well.

    At the point where your car was off camera by yellow truck, did you notice the RC signal strength? If yes, did strength ever become a concern?

    Again that's not my video but my mates so all the kudos goes to him. We live in Dublin, that flight was from kilmacanogue to Bray just south of the Dublin/wicklow border. Check out my YouTube page SKY PIXELS IRELAND if you want to see more of Ireland by drone

    Was it really panning automatically and as you stopped did it depend as well on its own

    Strength of signal was never a concern until the last bit of the videos with a lot of trees - i got weak signal flashing up twice on the phone
