    Sweet shots! I've owned my Phantom for a while now, but I still wouldn't dare to put it over water. :cry:

    Sweet video. :)

    I was there today but I left my P2V+ at home.

    I'm thinking of going back with it this week. The event goes on until Sunday August 3rd.
    :D Just do it. Flying over water is thrilling. The vast majority of my flights have been over water with no problem.

    I have taken stills for a sports website the last 3 years at the US Open. Shot this from the press booth last year. Hoping to get passes for the finals this year.

    At that time I didn't know what it was but in the note at the bottom of my site I wrote "I want one of these" now I am addicted to my FPV'd P2.

    The event is taking place at the Huntington Beach Pier which is in Orange County, CA.

    It's not too far from the LA county line and about an hour to downtown LA.

    I thought I caught a quick view of one of the buildings on the pier. There once were cameras on that building that I could pick up off a satellite using FTA equipment. Enjoyed seeing the massive change in the tides throughout the day. Since this Spring they only run ads and old videos of the beach. Not live anymore. There are still several on buildings away from the beach but do not show the tide change as well. Those can be viewed from the internet.
