    This is my first attempt at getting footage of the r/c Miss Geico boat.
    This was difficult because the camera on the Phantom 3 is a wide angle lens so to get decent shots it was necessary to operate close to the water surface and at high speed.

    That looked like a lot of fun. Great job on the footage. I know nothing about camera lenses other than the P3 is a 94 degree wide angle camera as you stated. I was looking around the other day as to lenses. Would any of these lenses give you a narrower field/angle for filming DJI Phantom 3 Lenses – Peau Productions

    Consider using Litchi Leash mode and throwing a disposable cell phone in the boat?
