Nice video! I am also curious as to what rig you're using.

Maybe we could lay out a basic info format for aerial vids-
Type of multi-rotor used
Camera used
Gimbal- (if so, what kind)
Wind conditions

I am heading soon to San Andres Island, where Morten Pedersen is already with his drone.
I hope he received his glasses.
We want to film some stuff...and it could be amazing footage with the most beautiful colors of the Caribbean combined with my new tricks and a drone following me where he can see what he films...

We will post all info you asked for when we go for it, so you can learn from our experience.

It looks like the wind is very light.
What is the max wind you can fly in ?

I've flow my Phantom and my F550 in GPS mode in 18 knots (laminar wind).
Both have NAZA controllers. In "attitude" mode should handle more. And manual even more, but does require extra skills ;-)
Tip for strong winds: I get someone to grab it on landing, else it's likely to tip.

PS: there is a thread in KF on the max wind topic:

Multicopters forums also start to cover kitesurfing aspects...

Have you considered a fixed-wing for strong winds ?
