    Very cool. I loved the surfing shots.

    I need to practice my sideways flying and I also liked how you would descend while backing up while filming the surfers.

    I've been meaning to go out to Huntington Beach to shoot the surfers, but I need to go in the morning when the wind is calmest.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Regarding the wind, you can actually use it to your advantage. With some planning you can let the drone drift in the wind and get super stable shots. Useful if you like me use the H3-2D and not the the H3-3D.

    I was amazed by the wind capabilities, during some of the kitesurfing shots the wind speed went up to +20 m/s in the gusts (+40 knots). I thought it would be the last flight of my phantom, but it just pitched down into the wind and kept flying.
