Travelling New Zealand with my (break-down-able) Zeph

My co-pilot (wife) and I have just returned from two weeks travelling NZ's south Island. One of the most beautiful places on earth.
This video comprises of all of my AP flights during the trip.
From smuggling the plane through customs, to persuading the Mrs to stand out in freezing weather to film my take-offs and landings, this video took a lot of organising and (enjoyable) work. Not to mention the editing. Please subscribe or like in appreciation!

Nice Job with the AP. So that what the South Island looks like with no snow. I was in Christchurch on a job late 1980's in the winter. The local manager drove us up to the deep water fjords - beautiful even in winter snow dress

Awesome video. My wife and I spent 3 weeks in the South Island at Easter time this year, so many of those views were familiar. You got any details about how you made your zephyr break down able?
