Was able to utilize POI as the theme of this video intermixed with Course Lock, and Waypoints with my P3P in a local residents personal 9/11 memorial he erected in his front yard.  I just dropped by thinking perhaps he may have some sensitivity in allowing an "aircraft" to fly over his Twin Towers.  Turns out he is also a drone enthusiast (although not Phantom) and has several RC planes too and a super cool guy.  Even offered my a beer and I hung out with him while he greeted people that just dropped by to support his efforts.




In all, everything worked flawlessly...except for CL.  It was a bit of a squeaker flying between the towers because CL allows too much lateral movement.  I saved a few of my waypoints and intend on returning some evening and record a rerun of the waypoint footage, but at night.  The Towers are fully lit, so should make for an interesting use of the resulting waypoint video of day vs. night.

There was some news coverage of his efforts also:  http://goo.gl/GEwPvQ

Wow, thanks.  Best compliment ever.  To be able to be inspired by the land/people around us and put it into video form that offers a visceral reaction to another...that's why we do this.  Couldn't be happier you appreciated it.  It was pretty cool visiting/filming  it in person, but more awesome to just hang out and experience the people stopping by (random individuals, firemen, military, etc) and watch them appreciate Tims work on his tribute was even more inspiring.
