    Flight over Elephant Beach

    Had recently been on a trip to the AN Islands and had taken my custom Phantom2 along

    It was like a first ever field test for the custom Phantom2 that I had made! That too over water! I was nervous as hell!! Whenever my Phantom is in the air I can feel my heart palpitating!

    Did the usual pre-flight checks.
    Fortunately, NIL interference there as not even cell phone networks were accessible! :D

    Flight over ROSS island.

    Forgive me for the short flight as I had to land early because of seagulls and eagles taking a keen interest in the Phantom!
    It was so rich in wildlife, we could see peacocks and deer roaming about without fear! :)



    More coming up...

    Please do critique!!
    It was my very first time using a Gimbal with my Phantom2. Would love to know where I can make amends.

    I realized that I had used WIDE mode for capturing from the GoPro, which led to landing gear showing quite a few times! :(

    Good skills in the trees-oh and nice location. Not jealous at all, only seen lots of rain for the last month so can't fly.

    Thanks a lot! :D
    Before taking off, I was visualizing the flight as zigzagging between the trees.
    But after I took off, I decided to go straight as it just seemed quite difficult to judge the distance from the trees while zigzagging :eek:
