Here is some lazy flying along the coast towards the south.
Points of interest, the part where I am waving and pointing was for my boss who is considering buying the land behind our shop.
The area near the marina on the hill is where I live and the mountain with the cross at the top is Mount Lam Lam, the tallest mountain on earth! enjoy!

I think it is, but as you can see there's a whole lot of nasty landing spots here. Sure ain't like AZ!
I know someone will ask about flying over the water, but inside the reef the water is literally ankle deep to 3 feet deep at the most. I figure my rig might not make it but a stop and drop should be survivable.
As for the jungle? Well I try my best to stay somewhat near or over pavement. But that's one of the reasons I am flying so high.....
