    Warning - a lot of beginner footage in here. Unless you REALLY love amateur flight, you might just want to watch the last one due to the location. All were shot at 720 or higher. Used a GP2 for the first three, and a GP3B for the last two.

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcfBfS_bfb4[/youtube] - Pretty boring - usual beginner footage (great song though)

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deq7zOD3TYI[/youtube] - More of the same, kind of boring

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfNr2ymDO8w[/youtube] - Kind of cool - shot at a dock and beach (cambria, ca)

    That's a great area to shoot in. Always enjoyed driving PCH.

    What's your GoPro mount setup like? Looks pretty solid...nice buttery footage.

    Absolutely everything is stock. After reading other reviews, it seems like I lucked out with (mostly) everything balanced. I use the stock mount and the waterproof GP3 case. Youtube offers a "hey your video is a little shaky, want us to auto-correct it" and I said OK for a couple of the vids, but I'm really pleased with the quality of the flight / footage.
