A year of flying, a few crashes, and one documentary later I finally made a video that I'm ok looking at.
These are a few of the more interesting places I've been to in that time.
All thoughts and criticism welcomed. I have a long way to go and appreciate other pilots opinions.

I took my M2P up Mt. Pilchuck yesterday. My partner Eric and I enjoyed having the mountain to ourselves, but the snow was a bit too mushy. Haven't edited the video yet, but didn't get any killer clips. Here are a few frame grabs - one thing I learned is to not use the ND filter (32) if I want to...
Fantastic video of a difficult first ascent in the Himalaya. The first I've seen on such a climb incorporating drone shots (controlled by a pilot at base camp).
So far I haven't been able to find any info on the drone pilot, or what equipment he used. This is quite high altitude, very cold...

A recent trip in the...
I filmed this video this week during what may have been the last bit of nice weather for November in the region. With the road closing for the winter this weekend, the area will soon be accessible only via a long trip via bike and snowshoe.
It's incredible being able to fly up to the summits of...
