Great shots and welcome to the forum!

Anilao is a place I love. I spent a few days diving there in 2012. I'd love to go back with a Phantom.

I heard there was a $500 luxury tax on Phantoms entering the country. Can you tell about your entry into the Philippines with your Phantom?

Hi Clipper. Yea, if you like macro, Anilao is the place to be!

I didn't actually know about the entry tax for drones. Mine was in a GoProfessional case inside of my dive bag, so maybe it went unnoticed...?

I know that many countries charge for professional photo equipment, so even if on an assignment, it saves cash to say the trip is a vacation :- )

Welcome to the party Brent,

I heard some similar "bad news" about drones in the Philippines. Happy to hear you made it in and out without issue. Hopefully they aren't watching your video and trying to track you down... :eek: When are you going back??? Ya might not be so welcome. Are you sure these videos aren't from sometime "LAST YEAR? ;)

Gonna go watch your video now. Thanks for sharing.

Hi @IflyinWY - thanks for the kind words. I think those shots were from when I threw my GoPro into the air on burst mode ;- ). Looks like I may not be bringing the Phantom on next year's trip...

I appreciate the search link too!
