    Just filmed this video and then stabilized using ProDrenalin. After editing in Premiere pro including adding sound effects and music.
    First time i have had it in nice calm weather and able to hover at around 5 ft above the sea. The gps mode seems very stable but i think i will start using ATTI mode in the future to try and stabilize it more. Been such a wide angle lens makes it very difficult to get good close ups. I am hoping to film surfing with it once i get more confident. I ended up adding lot of titles to it to make it into a trailer for my local club.
    It is the third video down on the page below called "Teignmouth Canoe Club"


    I had some security guys approach me to ask me what i was doing but a polite explanation and telling them i had third party insurance with me if they wanted to see it and they were fine. Then they were really interested in the drone.

    Very nice! I am in the early lusting-but-don't-yet-have stage. I plan to start with the Phantom 1 before going to FPV. Once I get the hang of it, I may venture further.
