    Fargo in the house? I dropped mine in Detroit Lakes a few weeks ago but am pondering reinvesting. In the meantime, if you want someone to come watch in jealousy then I will.

    Tough to land it in the lake for sure! I hand landed mine on Pelican this summer after realizing I forgot to anchor and drifted a 100 yards. Once my battery got low and it started to fly home, I knew I had to fire up the boat to get under it before splash down.

    I'm in Dilworth, and have been uploading a few videos to my youtube channel. www.biff.org

    Very cool Mark. I don't think you can ever top that jet boat sub video though. I have a few vids up too, none as cool as that.

    That clip keeps getting more and more hits.

    I do like your clips with the cutouts like the hole at Oxbow. What editing app were you using to do that?

    I generated it with Pix4D and edited in After Effects.

    here is Farego
    Brand new P4 flyer here in Fargo, 1 week and only 2 flights due to this crazy weather up here this past week. Long time fixed wing and heli enthusiast. I work with some guys that have various flavors of Phantom's and one guy even has a few, including an Inspire.

    It would be cool to see an inspire in action. I have been flying for over a year now and live in Dilworth. Yes, the weather has been horrible lately.

    My latest issue is a GoPro 3+ Black freezing up/shutting down. So I fear putting it back on my Phantom and losing FPV while in flight. I may need to source a new GoPro as the issue seems to be common in the GoPro forums with a wide variety of resolutions.
