Big Thompson Canyon - Mavic Video

Here's something a little different. I had some free time today so I took the Mavic up Big Thompson Canyon for a little flying/filming. Here's a quick edit (I am brand new to video editing, so I have a lot to learn).

The road is closed to traffic because of construction up the canyon. I might bring one of my race quads out there tomorrow .

BTW, the Mavic makes an excellent aerial photography platform as well. The camera is a little small, but it is surprising how much detail you can pull out of the RAW files.

Nice! What would really make a cool film would be a flight up thru a couple of the canyon's bends, then swoop up above to get a high perspective and a look around the high plateau, then dive back down into the canyon to return home to PapaCJ... At least *I* think it'd be really cool (at race speeds, natch!)
