    Brian DowersLast full day in Maui. Winds died down for about twenty minutes just as I was preparing to fly. Maui is beautiful and the water is amazing! I finally was able to capture some video worth editing. Sorry for the trip to be over but it was awesome to fly in such a beautiful place!

    Brian DowersFirst Flight in Maui, Hawaii. I was told it had been pretty calm until the day we arrived. Trade Winds really blew and the Phantom bounced around pretty bad. I haven't yet decided if the video is worth posting. Any way it is Maui and while the flying was nothing to write home about the view certainly was!

    Brian DowersFirst flight in Kauai, Hawaii. Flew at Kalihiwai Beach. Rained off and on nearly every day so I was finally able to get a flight in between the rain showers. Trade winds were really blowing pretty hard so I kept the Phantom pretty close. I was able to get some video of a few surfers and the general area, though not very stable video at all due to the wind. Still it is Hawaii and hard to complain!

    Brian DowersLow and slow flight in Honolulu, Hawaii. We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village so you could stand and watch the jets come in on final to Honolulu International Airport. There were also sight seeing helicopters all around so I kept it low and slow to avoid any issues. Still a great flight with great footage!

    Larry HebertWhat great video. And a good idea to bring the Quad with you. Looks like am going to have to build me a travel case. Nice long flight.....no shaky. Good video. Looks like you had a wonderful place to be at too. Safe trip back.
    Thanks for sharing the video.

    Brian DowersThank you for the kind comments. Hawaii makes any video look good!

    I highly recommend taking the Phantom along if you can. It is something how opportunities to get amazing video with the Phantom pop up.
