    Well Skeeter,

    You took the ugliest patch of land around, a girl on a bike, a bridge, a cow and some hillbilly music and made a great little movie.

    I don't know how to do what you did. If I did, I would move to Hollywood.
    Your stuff is always fun to watch.

    Thumbs UP. Thanks. :D

    Very nice! How do you get the motion so smooth?

    Super smooth motion. I would love to know the history of that location. What was the retaining wall for? Was it a dam that had filled in with sediment? Is the bridge public or private?

    I'd really be interested as to how you got the movement so smooth on all axis. Are you using a 3rd party transmitter with expo?
    Does anyone know whether one can use a 3rd party transmitter on the phantom 2 with the stock rx?

    Thanks for the gracious comments, y'all you made my day....**** near hit the bridge....derp...

    I found that bridge quite by accident....just looking for a "Ride 'N Fly" (bike ride to a remote location to fly) and spotted this location in Google Earth...off we went...

    Some background on the bridge which is somewhat interesting in itself: A "Re-purposed bridge" http://azdot.gov/docs/default-source/planning/long_inventory_forms_yavapai_4.pdf?sfvrsn=2

    and

    http://www.sharlot.org/library-arch...ip-to-seligman-on-the-williamson-valley-road/

    If I read the history right, that "dam" was part of an old bridge that washed away years ago...

    I use a Futaba 14SG for the controller with the stock Rx...yes, it has expo rate control (BIG thanks to Ianwood for his profile(s))

    Cheers, all!

    Thanks for the head-up!
    Your video is as good (if not better) than any inspire videos I've seen. I hope to get there some day.

    Interesting history of the area. And very nice video!
    Had I not seen the shadow of the Phantom, I would have sworn you were flying the Yuneec Q500 to get that smooth of video!
    Good work!

    Thanks again, y'all.

    Here's something of a documentary that I did with two Phantoms (a V2 and an updated V2) at a very cool mining location in northwestern AZ...

    Some of the dual P2 shoots are at 2:00 and much more at 6:36..Ya might need some popcorn for the whole thing...

    Cheers!
