    I fly with FPV gear (First person view). I wear Goggles that have video screens that show me what the copter sees. This type of configuration costs close to $2000. You can get it cheaper but you know, you get what you pay for.

    That's pretty cool! What an astonishingly beautiful place to fly! Do you get to play paintball out there also?

    Some technical things to consider on your video:

    1) You fly very well, but some of your attitude corrections are a bit fast and jerky. No big deal when it comes to flying, but is distracting in your video. I fly R/C aircraft, too, so I know how hard it can be, but if you can pull off smoother corrections, I think you'll like the result. Some of your turns were really well-done. I especially liked your pass of the boulder. That was thrilling!

    2) Get some of your friends to dress up in their PB gear, and stage some shots! Have them run down a road in formation while you do a fly-over! That would be pretty cool.

    3) If you want to actually use this as a drone in PB, I think you'd need to point your camera down some. If you're flying from the monitor, that would make it difficult, but if you're watching from the outside and a friend is watching the screen, a down angle view would make it easier to spot troop movements.

    Nice job! I look forward to your next one.

    Thanks. The jerky motion is partly due to the necesity of me needing to avoid hitting stuff! The other part is because I am still new to flying through the video goggles. I used to have a gimbal connected that held the camera level at all times and would allow me to tilt down and up via a switch on the remote but I took it off because it added to much weight and for now I am really just interested in sport flying. Thanks for the view!
