    Google Earth Pro bookends this video of the Madison County Nature Trail.

    Nice video. I like the perspective shots. Nice color too.

    Thank you, Monte, although I hate that youtube destroyed a few busy shots. Part of it's my fault for not shooting Protune, though. Not enough bits.

    Nice!
    I like the low and slow past the trees.

    I was expecting to see you fly out of a window on the bridge.
    What is the music. (Nice editing to the music, by the way).

    I was tempted to fly through a window but was overruled by a very low satellite count. Not used to flying ATTI much. That and the auto iris issue with the GoPro.

    As it was, this shoot cost me a set of props trying to maneuver low and slow among the trees. Probably more crashes that day than the previous 7 months combined.

    Thanks everyone.

    I too liked the various shot angles. I liked the final Google earth transition.

    Great video love the interpolation with Google earth, I can honestly say that I have never seen water that was so calm, great flying day.....

    I really like the low smooth shots. You did them really well, especially through the trees. Just wish you'd gone through the whole covered bridge.... that would have earned a gold star!

    I was lucky with the wind over the 2 days I flew. Both were calm but only one was sunny. It was so calm, when I flew very low to the water the prop wash would disturb it and trash the shot.

    Send me your Phantom and I'll give it a go!
