    Here is the SS Chrysoplis, about 1 mile out from the shore, over dangerous sands. The P3A was an awesome camera drone, no signal loss, great control.

    And that's why I have a drone, the ability to go out and explore places that would be difficult or dangerous on foot, well done.

    I looked at the first vid. Did you use Litchi or other waypoint mission software? The phantom props are visible during the entire outbound portion of the vid until you slow at the wreckage site. I try not to exceed 18mph otherwise the props make a nasty and distracting appearance in the video. Very nice location indeed.

    Hi, no this was flown in Go. I was flying into a strong headwind and couldn't be sure if the wreck was at the location I was headed to - it shifts over time, so I was going as fast as I could to get there. It's about 2km from the takeoff point, with no possibility to walk much closer due to soft mud, so I needed to cover ground quickly.
