"Live for today..."

A few days ago, a fine confluence of three events occurred - a Carnival cruise ship was scheduled to leave Galveston, I had the day off and my Phantom was in fine flying condition.

I did the only thing I could do and the result is the video below. Only after I got back home and looked at the video on the big monitor did I notice the dolphins escorting the ship out of the channel and the woman on the aft deck waving at me.

Every time I use this marvel of technology, I'm impressed at the seamless engineering that binds it all together at a price that was unheard of until as little as three years ago. GPS guidance, 4k video resolution, real-time video link with me and the transmitter, gimbal-driven camera stability and many fail-safe capabilities in case the link is broken.
