    Ha .. Well I guess that we had that one covered!
    You got real down low there. Where did you launch from?

    I launched from the end of Southdown road. I made sure I was high enough to clear the tallest sailboat masts, and I tried not to fly directly over any more boats than I had to. Your higher altitude shots were great at showing the entire boat-filled harbor.

    You launched from Wincoma - do you live there?

    Hello again .. nope, I don't live there. It took me about an hour and a half of 'social engineering' to gain access to my launch point. There were armed security guards blocking all access to the private roads and beaches on that day. Even after getting in .. I wasn't to sure that I wanted to launch and cause a ruckus at that location as it is super private. After landing to change my first battery, some of the locals were able to zone in on my location and started showing up. To my surprise, they were super nice, albeit with dozens of questions which with proper attention went just great.
