@jonp they are easy enough to fly, when it coms to landing I bring it in nice and close and have it hover just within reach and recover by catching the landing gear, I also take off by holding the landing gear and applying power until I feel it pull enough to take off, that's the scary part! hoping you have enough lift to get it up there and not into the water.


and here is one we got of a basking shark last year, I think it was one of the first videos of a basker from a drone...

Brilliant videos...OK puts my video in Rib Gallery (3 ribs have fun on the Mull) to shame...but it was only my second shoot with a gopro and editing.
Shows what can be done with time and forward planning. The drone shots are spectacular...well done.

We currently have huge bait schools out the front of our place with whales and dolphins feeding. The water has gone a little murky to what we normally have but heres a bit of filming my daughter did yesterday, the chop made it quite shaky (still heaps of fun)

Any tips on reducing condensation? Got the little wafer things that came with camera but they don't seem to work,

I havent needed those even though I often have very large temp changes when getting in the water, are you sure you don't have a small leak. Make sure the camera is dry before putting in the housing, I often to give mine a light blow with a hair dryer inside the housing to make sure its dry before leaving home.

If you do start getting condensation keep the lens facing down until you need to use the camera, the condensation will then form in the back of the camera housing rather than in front of the lens.

Try having the air con on in the car before sealing the camera. Easy enough if you drive to your launch site/boat.
