    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to share some stuff im working on with the phantom and gopro.
    https://vimeo.com/82650233

    My setup:
    Phantom 1
    Gopro Hero Black
    Tarot gimbal + FPV
    Phantom 2 plastic props

    Might look into upgrading to the T-motor antigravity's to be able to follow surfing better. With stock setup it seems abit hard to keep up with the speed of surfing.

    Thx guys! Ive never tried flying in ATTI mode. Does the phantom maintain its altitude in ATTI mode or could it fly diagonally down into the ocean? In GPS mode I guess I wouldn't have to worry about the phantom dipping down while I focus on filming the surfer am I correct?

    Atti mode will hold altitude (with centered throttle), but will drift with the wind and not hold its position. It's useful in gusty conditions as the phantom won't be continually correcting for the wind bumping it around. You could take off and let the wind "push" the phantom along with the right wind conditions.
