The video is not bad either. Heh-heh.

PS - Do you use wind or solar on your boat?
Try watching the vid! You'll see!

You open with a shot that shows you can actually keep your boat off the rocks, then a freakin' bird starts squawking. Then I get dizzy. What else is there? Heh-heh.

From what I can tell you have BOTH solar and wind? Which one is more effective?

I'm betting wind because you can also use the drone to blow the prop of the wind gen. Brilliant.

(The footage is beautiful. Stable and great color. Nice work.)

Re: Another HORRIBLE drone video

Solar is much better. Maybe with a better windgen, I might like it more. The Air Breeze is wimpy. Unless you are going down island where the trades blow strong, put windgen way down your list. Solar puts out more, costs less, no noise. But you should ask conky joe from the solar and wind thread. Just climb into the wayback machine and set it to 2007.

Now, back to those annoying drones...
