Just got a quadcopter drone last month with high def video. I purchased with the hopes of getting some new and interesting views of my family on our annual water skiing vacation which was last week.

Here is my first video. My older daughter followed by my son and then my wife.

A few observations:
1. This can be a lot a fun and a new angle for photography/videography.
2. I need more practice being a pilot. It was tough following a boat at 30mph while trying to keep my subject in the frame.
3. This hobby is not for the weak kneed. Flying your costly drone over water was nerve wracking.

    There's a new one coming that follows you. You set some parameters (altitude/angle), start it up and do your thing. Works with a Hero3 and Hero3+.

    Cool video!
