    It is nice what you have but now days people expect more. Maybe fly higher or get different angles.

    Thanks, and I certainly agree. Being pretty new I'm taking it easy but hope to at some point be much better.

    Just keep on going , show to us how beautiful Oregon is :D
    It is more risky to fly over water.
    My opinion the next step is to have FPV feedback, not necessary goggle but a display.
    Where you can have feedback of direction, data, battery condition.... That gives lots of peace of mind.

    This is just my personal opinion but I always kill the audio and replace it with some sort of music. Not many people enjoy the loud drone of a phantom. I bet Oregon is an aerial wonderland.. shame it rains a lot.

    Yes,, lost and lots of great places here in southern Oregon to fly without bothering anyone. And not nearly as much rain in the southern area either.
    I am only using the free GoPro editing software right now but I plan to pick up something better so I can apply music and get rid of the sound of the Phantom. Just need to settle on a easy to use program.
    Thanks for the input.

    You can still turn off the raw audio in gopro studio and replace it with new audio. PM me if you have any problems finding out the steps. You can also slow down / speed up footage. I'd say some low / high fly overs at a 75% speed would look awesome with your scenery. Keep in mind slowing down the raw makes each clip longer so it's a little easier to edit out the shakey/ unusable clips.

    Thanks, you're comment made me go back and look a little harder and I did in fact figure out how to take away the sound. I guess I need to put some music on my computer to begin with to figure out how to put music to the video.

    Let me help you with that. Occasionally youtube / vimeo will flag downloaded music (aka copy-written material). Use this website and download all you want for free http://freemusicarchive.org/ Then hit the tab that says "Genre". Also you can use https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music but you will need a gmail acct to download. I promise you can learn something new everyday if you just reach out and find it (youtube has been my best friend in this journey). I'm still a super noob in all of this but youtube has helped me so much, and so has this forum.. Thank you everybody!!

    Thanks for another great tip and lead !! I have downloaded a few tunes and started to mess around trying to put music to a video. Have not figured it out just yet but getting close I think.
    Any tips would be helpful however.

    I was fumbling around trying to get the program to recognize the music files but I managed to do it twice now. In fact I posted another video that I shot today and put music to. And thanks again!!
