On April 21, 2014 the world’s focus will return to this great city to watch the 118th Boston Marathon. As usual, runners will take their places at the 26.2-mile mark, while friends, family, and the people of this iconic city line the streets to cheer them on. The memory of last year’s heinous and senseless act will not shy runners or spectators from celebrating this annual sporting event that welcomes participants from all over the world. Yet, we will all stand in remembrance of the beautiful people who lost their lives and those who were gravely injured in the tragedy. In pain we found love. We grieved together and chose friendship over hate. We honor the brave men and women who tirelessly worked in the days after the bombings. This short video is dedicated to the great city of Boston and its people, and especially to the victims Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell and Lingzi Lu, as well as to MIT Police Officer Sean Collier who died in the line of duty. They messed with the wrong city. We choose to be Boston Strong and WE WILL RUN.

I got my new FreeFly Systems MōVI M5 today. I thought I'd do one of those annoying "unboxing" videos and show you that you really can get this thing up and running from scratch in very little time. Thanks to Tabb Firchau and the folks at FreeFly Systems for bringing the magic of this product down to a level where a normal human being can afford it. Next step is to start integrating this into my production, and into my big copter!
A quick flight on Flathead Lake, MT with our MoVI M5. We find lake horizons are tell tales of horizon drift and were quite happy with the stability and level accuracy of the M5.
We used a Cinestar 8 HL with MK boards/motors and 15x5 Tiger props.
