  • very cool. yeah, I've found that the secret to Crissy field is to go early in the morning around dawn.  This happened to be a weird, VERY calm afternoon.  Those days don't happen that often :)

    Nice! I always assumed Crissy would be too windy, but it looks like you caught it during a perfect calm morning.

    I've been flying at the huge open fields at Candlestick over the water.

  • Using Final Cut Pro X for the editing and then rendering out in Compressor.  Just picked the HD 720p settings preset from Compressor and then up to Vimeo.
