Gorgeous video in 4K. Were you just chasing random boats or was any of that coordinated?

Ha! I wish it was my combo battery.. I uh.. Destroyed my first one on day 8. Best thing about the new P3P is the extra battery and 2 on the way!

What I meant by "Destroyed my first one on day 8" is I destroyed my 1st P3P, specifically the gimbal and camera. The battery is fine that's why i have 2 of them...

Wow, that "low pass" at 1:02 is truly hairy! You had to be pretty close to the water (not to mention the boat) on that one!

I don't have that kind of balls for sure :D

The funny thing was that the folks in that boat (as far as I can tell) had no idea I was there... I thought about moving over to their right so they could see me :)

Hehe, I was going to ask you this (if the guys in the boat knew that they were filmed).

Videos like these are very impressive. If I somehow could lock the height to, say, 20 meters I too would have dared doing this, but I'm afraid to move the left stick vertically by accident while adjusting the yaw.

Or maybe set a temporary minimum height.

:) I remember the days when I was flying quads like QAV400 w no GPS, ATTI turned off, full manual, flips & rolls, dodging trees. If you survive that stuff then flying P3 feels like slow-mo.
