    video was shot in 1080P 60fps with GoPro Hero 3 Black on Phantom 2 w/ Zenmuse H3-2D
    full 25m/s speed, turns are all adaptive
    no editing other than to cut video length
    one effect: single static zoom effect throughout, to eliminate occasional glimpses of prop guards (and a brief phantom shadow during the low pass)

    What I enjoy most is that even though no (internal) camera or post-production image stabilization was used, it's still pretty stable. The Zenmuse and other Phantom features create a remarkably steady platform. I can't wait to upgrade to an image-stabilized version of GoPro whenever they finally come out. Camera does seem to wag back and forth a tiny bit, as I gather is usual with GS routes. Still steadier than my hand, overall. This whole run was set full speed 25m/s. I noticed the route got much "sloppier" the faster I would set the speed. It rounded corners more drastically, and in general never got very close to the waypoints due to always bending away toward the next one (adaptive turns). Once I saw it didn't crash at full speed I let it run another lap and tried to hide from view. Then on the third pass it scraped the ground pretty good so I stopped everything, lol.

    You were either very lucky or very good. You were very close to those trees and then the ground!
