Yes, lots, but too lazy to edit them. Waiting for Max (the guy you see in the pics) to do the tedious job...
Did your quadcopter Sink to the bottom of the ocean ?

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas to all!
After Bali, I've been flying the Phantom more above Buddhist temples than over the waves. Got some really nice shots. I might hijack the original topic (it's mine after all) and post some captures here. I've learned a few things since my beginnings. I have upgraded to the DJI F550 hexacopter with a gimbal for camera stabilization and control, FPV to see on a screen or goggles what the camera sees, iOSD that embeds flying data (altitude, distance, speed, vertical speed, course, etc...) into the video transmitter.
But although it flies well, it's not the ideal combo for a travelling as its arms don't fold. So my next toy will be the Tarot FY680 Folding Hexacopter, with a better gimbal (at the moment I've got a cheap servo Chinese made servo based). I wouldn't take anything larger and heavier, or I'd have to sacrifice some of my kite/board quiver.
BTW the F550 doesn't seem to fly faster than the Phantom, 10 to 12 m/s = 20 to 24 knots. I got ranges up to 600 m with the FPV. The flying time worse than the Phantom, with 2 x 5000mAh 4S batteries, 8 minutes vs 10.
You want a movie, Bille? Here is one for the circumstance:
