One good thing about traveling is that you get some time over for editing. Here is the edited video that I shot in Cancun – Mexico

Here are my 5 top tips for a great flying Tricopter. Brought to you by Flitetest.
Wow time flies! It’s already time to leave California. Time just races by. But my adventure is not over yet. I’m flying to Miami next, where I will visit my friend Heiko, who is a wildlife videographer. He does amazing work, check some sample clips on his page.
The plan is to go into the Everglades and get some footage with the tricopter. We’ll see how many GoPro’s I’ll have left after this trip. Hopefully it will be fine.
Guys, here is the long awaited Flitetest episode on the Tricopter:

Hi Guys! I’m back from my trip to Mexico!
Mexico is hot! Really, really hot. And humid. Luckily the hotel-rooms had AC ^^
