    Forgot to mention: Tipped the head waiter $20 for permission at the Isla Mujeres historic site restaurant and he literally cleared an outside patio of customers for me to take off and land from :)

    Here's an update I posted to use the Adobe Premiere Pro Warp Stabilizer on scenes where my flying or solo camera work wasn't perfectly straight or smooth. Buttery smooth now:



    For anyone who wants to see the effect of the Warp stabilizer and compare scenes from the original video above the one with Warp applied, here are some of the stuff it fixed:

    1:14 to 1:19 was pretty ugly before and was smoothed out significantly (manual POI type shot)

    1:34 - 1:38 (fast 60mph ATTI mode run to shore) had a very visible flight correction in it Warp fixed (I wanted the shot but that flaw sucked)

    1:51 - 1:55 (look down a rocks with surf) is one of the best shots of the video but it was marred by uneven camera work . Warp smoothed that out nicely

    2:16 - 2:20 (visitor center fly up) probably the most visible effect of Warp was smoothing of an unfortunate flight correction in the middle of the shot. Warped it out!

    2:57 - 3:01 (closing magical cliff shot) **** flight correction again jerked the frame. Warp. Gone.
