    Lucky you!

    Advice: Test flight before going there. Sometimes these things are iffy from the factory and in need of fixin'.

    Indeed, I had a test flight yesterday and initially it took an hour for calibration but then it flew, it was dark by then so just a little flight time, going to test it again today for more experience :)

    Don't forget your ND filters too! Pack at least a ND16. Spare battery or two wouldn't hurt.

    I know a pro model who gave up her NYC apt. as she's always on a plane going somewhere. Never had a home for over a year just traveling the globe. She said Iceland was the most beautiful country she's been to in the world. She's made it a point to hit all countries around the planet for at least a week's worth of bookings to learn and see the area, and Iceland tops her list. I call her a Nomadic gypsy (She agrees!), and her whole life's belongings are in her small airplane roller bag. Seems weird, but she likes it.

    I am too looking forward for my trip, I can say it's my first time with aerial videography so bit nervous too. Don't have anytime left to buy ND here so will try my luck at airport. Thanks for the tip. Life is too short and no other better way to enjoy than travel.
