    Well I am now about 12 flights into the Inspire. I am in love with the bird, but I am still having trouble getting the right settings in the camera. This was a tough lighting situation so I don't put a lot of weight on this particular shot, in fact while this is very noisy once the sun was a little higher and I was looking away from the sun, the shots are much
    cleaner. Def watch in HD!

    Nice, looks cool. I would hate to have to have it land somewhere unexpected and go find it. But what a beautiful place to fly..

    Nice. A little post correction could make it even better but the content is great.

    I mostly fly in the jungle or on the beaches here so emergency landings are a tough one! I lost a P2 about a year ago and it took me 30 hours of searching to find it. Thankfully, the rains held off until about 15 minutes after the search was concluded. The bird was fine and flew again. I made a little video from the footage.

    I am a newbie with the I1 and am still struggling to find a good workflow in post for I1 footage. Any tips would be appreciated. I use FCPX. The main issue is noise in shadows and aliasing in highlights. Trying to find the balance is tough.

    Thats funny. I loved the parody! Glad you got her back. Do you have a beeper on her. I used to use a beeper that would make this wicked loud beeping when flying rockets. You could just turn it on and go then if you crash at least maybe hear it.

    What part of CR are you headed to? I know it sucks traveling with gear but I promise you will find great landscapes here. Have a great trip and if you are in the southern pacific zone say hey!

    That is a nice area but about 7 hours north of me. Roadtrip. ha ha ha. Yeah, I understand the apprehension. I had to fly mine in from the US. All went well. The cheapo case that it came with stood up to the luggage handlers well. Have fun in Papagayo

    I live here in Costa and transported the copter with 4 batteries. FYI you can not fly on airplanes with the bigger battery (4900 I think)
