Would be really good with some minor motion compensation, color / gamma / exposure correction & dropping the sickly music choice :P

I watched this on your You Tube channel and I think it was a good test for your stabilised gimbal.
I enjoyed the video but perhaps half Alsea Falls and half Mary's Peak might have been a better balance and I am afraid the music did nothing to enhance my viewing pleasure.
I have watched quite a few videos with fast water and an effect I like and think it enhances greatly is some slow motion footage.
You will probably realise that the editing is the hardest part, what to leave out, what to leave in and as long as you are pleased with the result that is more than half the battle as you will never please everyone

Actually, I thought it was a great video and very smooth. I'd be tickled with a video that smooth. Even though I didn't understand the voice on the music, I enjoyed it. I like easy listening music. I'm not too crazy about this loud screaming acid rock or rap ( c-rap) music. I know that most of the younger generation does though. And I'm OK with their liking it!

Thanks for the input... I actualy had it edited down farther and windblows movie maker crashed, so I gave up and posted.

The music is some thai folk music I had on hand, I enjoy it myself, but it's meaningful to me. I don't really know where to find music that can be used on youtube.. any advice is appreciated.

All the video is at 1/2speed except the car shot. The water was really moving and generating an amazing amount of wind. I didn't have a spotter and wasn't comfortable flying FPV in that tight of an area, so I'm happy with how well I managed to capture things and how well the stabalized gimbal is working out.

I have a lot to learn on the editing side.. heck, with these little beasts there's always more to learn!!

I was directed to this site http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-f...&Search=Search you will need to do a biit of searching around but there is lots of Royalty Free Music there.

I have used a track composed by Kevin MacLeod for a video I did of me teaching my godson to ride his bike
I just gave him a credit in the end titles
