My first few times snow kiting in and around Leadville Colorado:

Twin Lakes: https://quik.gopro.com/v/JZ5o3taAKt/

Second time on Turqoise Lake: https://quik.gopro.com/v/UqOgm5Kj2e/

(I can't get the first Turqoise Lake video to upload... Gopro quick is a piece of crap!)

Very cool Saul!

How long does the battery last?

And I noticed you are a bit on the upper part of the screen...so if you would jump higher you would be out of the picture...can you change that via the control options or is it a calibration thing?

The battery is supposed to last about 23 minutes, but in cold weather or strong wind, its often a lot less.

There aren't many control options when using the Wizard controller. It basically looks like a simplified, small DVD remote. You can control the tilt of the camera with the Wizard controller, but you really need to stop what you are doing to press buttons. I'm not sure how much the drone and gimbals can correct for jumps. It may simply be because of the delay inherent in a device that is tracking you by GPS.

Some clips from Carson Pass in the California Sierras.
The wind was high and gusty, and we were on the smallest kites we've been on for snowkiting.
