    Havasu falls is 100ft high. One of the most beatiful place I've been to. Very windy and no GPS lock. The end of the video my girlfriend is catching the quadcopter because I wouldn't be able land it safely.

    I'm still noob at editing videos.

    Very nice area for sure. And yes, very lucky you didn't lose your SD card... :)

    That area is Havasupai Tribal Land. If they don't care it's none of the federal governments business I believe.

    Yes GCNP rules do not apply here. The natives said it's okay for personal use but need permit for commercial use and don't fly it near the campground or village fri-monday because of the helicopter. They warned me ahead of time not to lose it because it's gets very windy.

    Very nice that they provided you with a table and shade tree to keep you cool during the flight...!!

    Yup, nice pictures. Permits are expensive but don't screw it up for those who fly aerials for a living.
