    My horizon wasn't level in some of my original shots and I had to fix it in post.

    I also live in Westchester. Wanted to fly at Kensico but haven't yet. Love the bear MT shots and the GWB in the distances ones. Anyone give you any problems?

    So far nobody has given me any issues, I keep my footprint small as possible when I fly.

    sure thing, let me know if you know of any good local spots upstate. I'm in manhattan so I just explore until I find somewhere worth shooting.

    Great film. Flying above the water wasn't scared you?

    Of course it makes me nervous to have $1500 hovering over water but sometimes to get the shot you have to be prepared to take risk. Key is to become confident in your piloting abilities and learn to trust your equipment.
