    Here is my latest video from this morning. Canyon Lake Arizona.

    This video was compiled using 4 separate 10 - 15 minute flights from 2 locations near the lake. At 1:29 I almost hit the water as I was at about negative 500 feet elevation and was trying to gauge my altitude off the water in the bright sun from my tablet screen. Based on my calculations I came within about 5 feet. Too close for comfort!

    Enjoy!

    Great Job Chris!, I thought I was going for a splashdown in that one shot.

    Thanks Mutant. Looking at my flight logs that was practically a splashdown. With the water so smooth it was impossible to gauge my altitude above the water.

    Here is a short clip where you can better see how close it was.

    What program did you use to edit it. I'm having a hard time converting MOV. to others in my editing.
    It was a great video.
