Breathtaking clips! I like how in clip # 9 the refection on the water created a surreal look, almost like there was a void in between the rock formations or perhaps some depth with the world below. I can only look up to you and admire your work! Good song choice! Nice piloting as well!

PB... Thanks for the intro to this New Phantom 4... What an amazing piece of filmmaking equipment!  Several summers ago, I was directing what I called "Cutting Edge"  Summer Film Camps for high schoolers at Stanford & Pepperdine Universities in California... The Theme was that the stories had to be told to a piece of Music... Any Music the campers choose to use... & they were to be captured utilizing DSLRs, GoPros, & a Phantom Remote Controlled Chopper.... The students supervised by their Mentors  did an outstanding job and after the final screenings many of the parents commented that the films looked like "Professional Music Videos..." That was largely due to the Mentors flying the Phantom for each of the student's videos... Do you remember the cost of renting a  Real Helicopter, Pilot & Camera Rig per hour "back in the day"??? The Phantom & similar drones  have made that mode of capture obsolete... It's an  extraordinary tool for creative image capture and the newest model is simply off the charts with its updated features... DW
