    Well February in Arizona LOL It has been really warm the last several days. Went up to the lake this past weekend and took the Phantom. I am pretty happy with the way it all came out!

    I generally like to fly "line of sight" when flying close to the boats. I also fly in ATTI mode as GPS mode stops way too fast if you have to let off the sticks! I get better fast movements when in ATTI mode too I feel.

    Enjoy

    Nice video!

    Around here, people on lakes are cutting holes in the ice to fish, not run speedboats :(

    Very cool! I live near a large lake. Definitely going to have to take my new Phantom out there when the weather improves.

    Isn't it just a matter of 'when' you loose it? ;)

    . I also fly in ATTI mode as GPS mode stops way too fast if you have to let off the sticks!

    There is a setting in the DJI go app where you can adjust the breaking speed in gps mode when you let off the stick, might be something to look into. And also- NICE VIDEO
