    The 30mph winds stopped blowing (calmed down slightly) today so decided i better get some flight time in while i could.

    Pretty difficult flying fast FPV with the GoPro on a gimbal but with the help of the OSD it started to become a little easier.

    Youtube seems to have compressed the hell out of the file, so made another one rendered at 50Mbps and it's even worse!

    Nice--I'd never get that close to trees with FPV.

    Just curious... did you speed up the video. Kinda looks like it.

    That's some insane flying. I'm too chicken to fly like that.
    I noticed you went by bike. How are you transporting your Phantom. Do you have a specialised bag?

    Thanks, I'm still practicing, not been flying long at all. As for transporting the phantom, unfortunately I do not have a specialised backpack, I just use my regular laptop backpack, put everything inside (tx, goggles, spare props, spare batteries for tx / gopro and lipos), take the props off the phantom and bungee it to the front of the bag, then I usually just cover it with a bag for no reason other than to divert prying eyes lol.
