    Here for a week. Phantom 3 is rock solid in high winds. Hoping for calmer day. Hope you guys like this compilation so far.

    Subject matter is excellent!

    Something is really wrong with your gimbal, though. I'd say you either left the foam packing piece on, or serious out of balance props.

    Beautiful. Thanks for posting. Two questions. First, What altitudes did you climb to in the first and second videos? Second, what adjustments did you make .between flights?

    Nice! I always thought Molokai was all rock, but some nice beaches there! Enjoy!

    I removed the foam protective piece that I used to travel with.

    ROFLMAO... Thanks for removing the foam. Great stuff, I hope we get to see more of your adventure.

    That P3 must have some serious horsepower under the hood. Those offshore winds were kicking pretty good, in the first video, and you just zipped right back to shore.

    Very nice, thanks for sharing.
