    Hi guys ,
    This is a short trailer I filmed with my Phantom 2 H3 3D Gimbal and Gopro 3 Black +.
    You must see the Rocket War ! It is a local traditional event held annually at Easter in the Greek island Chios.

    Two rival church congregations in the town perform a "Rocket War" by firing tens of thousands of home-made rockets across town, with the objective of hitting the bell tower of the church of the other side. The rockets are wooden sticks loaded with an explosive mixture containing gunpowder and launched from grooved platforms.

    Better vewing it at 1440p

    Have Fun !!!
