    There is nothing cinematic about this one. Only shooting a bit to check out the ice storm we had last night. Its likely our area will be without power for several days to a week.

    Yea, I was flying in GPS. The winds were so gusty that flying near anything in ATTI would have been troublesome.

    I wasn't trying to be real smooth or anything with this one. Just wanted to see what it looked like up close near the top of some of the larger trees in the yard.

    This is also the replacement bird from the first one that the motor failed on. I've not tuned the gains on this one yet to smooth it out. This one is straight out of the box.

    No, not flying FPV on this one. I have a video downlink but can fly better without it. I'm more used to flying visually.
