As most of you know i recently lost my Zoom and i have managed to buy another, it just so happens that the maiden flight of this new Zoom had to be at one of my staff members funeral - His name was Vinod - 43 years old - suffered a stroke and ended up on life support and lost the battle a week later. Vinod May you Rest in Peace.

Hmm, maybe just me but this seems the most insensitive and unwelcome way you could possible use a drone. Really bad taste and flying directly above mourning people.

That would be your opinion and should be kept to yourself, He was a close friend, a good working colleague and loved the company and brand he worked for and wanted his send off to be like this - so I gave him his last wish. keep your thumbs down to yourself please

Thank you Gamora, he was truly dear to us all and to go at such a young age - well he wanted a grand send off and said we must film his send off and show it to the world which is what I am doing.

Thanks Andy, Yes he had a Hugh turn out he was well known in the industry working for us for just about 20 years, I knew him for 15 years so he was very close. Yeah some people just come onto this forum to ditch others and it seems that they get pleasure out of it.

First of all sorry for the loss of your coworker and friend Vinod.
The question is if you do what he wanted or what some other members here think.
If I had to decide I would honor the last wish of my friend as you did.
