    Did you use adaptive turns? I'm torn about using GS for golf courses

    I fly golf courses a lot since I work for the United States Golf Association. The Phantom is a real boom for golf courses superintendents who are finding the aerial video and photos outstanding for identifying irrigation problems, fertilization overlaps and skips, and poor soils. In fact, in your video at 2:04there looks like obvious scar left from filling in a bunker which may not be near as obvious on the ground. I have found many "lost" architectural features with my Phantoms.
    Here are links to a couple of my golf videos:
