    Filmed this yesterday. Always a little bit more exciting when flying over water. Phantom performed well though and made it home dry :) Might need a little prop balancing but otherwise went well.

    Cool stuff. What kind of rescue group were you filming? Is that like the coast guard there?
    Great flying btw. I wish I had something to film like that.

    Yes it's the Coastguard. Those are both surf rescue vessels but unfortunately it was dead flat when I filmed. I'll have another go when some swell arrives. Should look a lot better :)

    Oh nice. Always amazes me how well these things handle wind. Have you tried any corrections to remove that fisheye? Nice smooth flying!
    Saw a Phantom flying at the Urban Downhill event in Lyttelton yesterday, should be good to see what footage comes out of that :)
