Thanks for the positive feed back guys. this was filmed right off the Gulf Coast. the storm was all around me.  I was lucky enough for it not to be raining to be able to fly up and get this footage the other day. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

Great Video,
Watch out for those invisible updrafts. I live in the mountains so the winds up high can be up .. down.. all over the place.
Had a bit of a struggle one time to get it back down. I have been saving up for a 3.

I was thinking about your flight in a lightning storm and the cautions about flying near power lines.  I guess it is the electro-magnetic interference that could cause problems for the Phantom.  Wouldn't a nearby lightning bolt cause the same issues as flying close to the power lines (electro-magnetic interference)? I think the video was entertaining but I feel it is a high risk activity. Well, something to think about even if it did not rain.
