After many successful test flights around the homefield I decided to venture out yesterday for the first time around both people and water with my P4.

Launched from the Mill River shore in the Cascumpec area about 10min from home. Was a great Saturday, a very bright and warm sun had many out and about. The video looks more fpv then cinematic but I wasn't trying to be either, just out for a little spin around and thought I'd share some summer fun with the squad. :cool:

That's what I was talking about! Look at the beautiful neighborhood you have to fly in compared to me :). Nice flying with the P4. Forgot about sometimes seeing the blades on steep banking shots. Really smooth flying, love that gimbal. Didn't take you long to get a handle on flying the big boy. Liked the video and the music. Appreciate you sharing RotorWash.

I thought you were on final approach to a grass airstrip at the beginning and then canceled due to the crosswinds.

Thanks for sharing the P4 experience. :)

Thanks so much DJ! Well let me tell you, just before heading out to the shore, I had a dragonfly buzz me. Instantly thought of you! :)

What fun. That lovely red soil again, full of iron. Great flying and so interesting to watch with happy fun music. Are those oyster beds in the background. I know you have a few lobsters there but oysters too-rampant!!

Thanks for watching twickers14. Yes those groups of buoys you see are attached to floating cages that are used to grow oysters more efficiently then just letting them live on the bottom as they would normally do. The oyster industry has been around for decades but this way of farming them (as opposed to fishing them) has grown significantly over the past 10-15 years.

Really nice, RotorWash, that P4 sure moves out. Was a beautiful day for it, too.
Thank you I B Spectre. We get a little of that Florida heat for about a month or two then it's back in the freezer for the winter! 😄
