    Great video and super cool spot for shooting video. It had me watching for a cave to go search for some gold. I was curious if you ever flew into any issues where the wind was a problem?

    Thanks, it was pretty windy but that never affecting flying or gave any drifting. I will say it was nerve racking though flying it up that high where a single mistake means it's gone and lost. Totally worth it though

    Good use of the drone as a camera platform. Nice scenery.

    Then in some cases with the people around you can take your mind off watching say the app where the battery charge may suddenly drop quicker then expected meaning you need to land and not continue flying. Yesterday I flew in 20 degrees cooler temps then what I had been flying in and I had kind of forgotten how much quicker the battery drains in cooler/colder weather.
