Nice. Seems a little too shaky for my taste though. Did you have the GoPro mounted directly to the frame without a gimbal?

I was seeing that too! This was my first time videoing with my quad copter so i didn't have any stabilization. I just mounted it directly to the frame. Is that the reason my video is so shaky or is it that my kk2.0 just is not tuned correctly? I'm looking to go do another flight today so I am gonna need a quick and easy way to make the video better? Thanks

Nice area, don't think much of how close you are to others though.

All of the people I got anywhere close too in this video were family/friends that were completely fine with me flying close to them. Thanks for watching

I have thought the way you do in the past but there is one important thing to consider, they may be fine with it but how would you feel if something went wrong and you hit one of them?.

Accidents happen and all you have to do is look through these forums to see just how often things go wrong. All multirotors crash at some point, its not a case of if but when.

My brother, the one who is wearing the black jacket was hit by a 12 inch apc prop at full rpm when he hit the sticks by accident. He had to go to the emergency room to get stitches on his leg. Early in my flying experiences, I launched a pusher plane and the propeller hit my hand and caused 4 deep gashes down my left pointer finger. I still have scars from this accident. Thanks for your concern! Check this video out of me crashing my FPV plane into my head! Thanks guys!

This just shows that flying around others is not a good idea as anything could happen it may be your fault or something that you have no control over. Not only could you damage people but you could damaged property as well.

I fail to see what age has to do with it.

I'm not your momma, I'm not your daddy. If you hurt somebody it's your problem, not mine, so I don't feel the need to be your conscious.

Nice vid. Not everyone needs to be a professional videographer and I thought the scenery was awesome.
