Here's a short quadcopter video Kevin made yesterday while we were moored in Watmough Bay on Lopez Island:
Pretty spot, isn't it?

Ta-da! Kevin's finished aerial video from around Patos Island (watch in HD if you can):
Shot with an FPV Quadcopter. Filmed with GoPro Hero 3+ aboard a Team Black Sheep Discovery Pro quadcopter. Launched from a Nordic Tug 34 anchored in Active Cove on Patos Island, WA.
The music is Isaac Albéniz: "Suite Española No. 1, Op. 47: Asturias" played by Ivan Kalcina.
More about the quadcopter here if you're interested.

We took the quadcopter and hiked out to the lighthouse on Alden Point for some more fun aerial footage.
Oh hey seals!
In this photo, there's one seal looking straight up at the copter. You might have to click for an enlargement, but it's pretty cute.
Another cove-side campsite (Patos Island is a Washington State Park):
The remains of an old car or truck, beside the trail out to the lighthouse:
Kind of funny to have a car on a very small island where there are most definitely no roads.
Hey! The new mooring buoys match the boat's paint job:
Earlier today Kevin did his first from-the-boat launch and it went great! Can't wait to see the footage he got out here!
Taking off from Airship's top deck:
Smooth, successful top-deck landing:
