    Hello all!
    So after waiting 2 years I finally got my hands on a drone. After a lot of practice I headed out to the Beach to capture some video. Hope y'all enjoy.

    Need to get a better video editor and work on getting more cinematic type shots.

    Looking forward to being a part of this community!

    Nice video and welcome the the forum! If you want to make it more cinematic, start by slowing down the tilt section. It looks rushed otherwise. If you show it down, it will make it feel more like a movie.

    Also, are you on a Mac or PC? You should try iMovie or FCPX if on Mac.

    The reversed video of the waves made me think that was the weirdest looking clouds I had ever seen. :)

    Over the sea flying is great. No trees or other obstacles to worry about and so much visual interest with shorelines, waves, clear water and foam. Some nice shots there and great to look at.

    Cool video, I havent had my phantom long and would love to take mine out and film some stuff over the water, just gotta get over the paranoia of dumping it in the water, I have taken it over a bit of water but always get freaked out, guess I gotta just learn to trust the phantom more and let it do what it does best
