  1. I am going to Tamarindo the week after I get out of school (I am a junior in high school) and will hopefully be staying there six or seven days. I'm not quite sure what I will be filming yet, but I love to create short travel videos documenting my travels, so that is what I am hoping to do. That being said, I will definitely post whatever I manage to create! Thanks again for the help! Justin
  2. I use both Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro when I'm editing my videos. Both are very powerful software that can do just about anything. In my opinion, Final Cut is simpler to use, and I will use it for my smaller projects with a shorter turnaround time. On the other hand, if you can get the Creative Cloud subscription, you have access to a handful of products which can be useful in post-production. For example, I will use Adobe Lightroom to color correct all of my still images, and I use Adobe After Effects to add special effects or stabilize my footage. Long story short, you can't go wrong. The only thing that matters at this point is how skillfully and efficiently you can use each software, and the difficulty to learn new techniques for editing. I'd love to see some of your work!

  3. Thanks for the quick responses and useful insight! It sounds like I'll shy away from bringing my Phantom to Cuba but can use it in Costa Rica after a few days of acclimating both the drone any myself. That being said, I will be careful where I fly and who is nearby during my flights. Also, great video, Av8Chuck, definitely getting me excited for this summer! Hope you both have plenty of fun and safe flights shortly and any additional information would be greatly appreciated! Justin
  4. Hey everyone, Hope all is well in the UAV community. This summer I will be going to Costa Rica and Cuba for a few weeks and was hoping to gain some insight on the rules and regulations of flying drones in each country. I read articles saying "You must not fly without a license. A license consists of 48 hours of theoretical training and 10 hours of practical training by schools authorized by the DGAC" for Costa Rica, but I don't know if my commercial license for the United States will cover me. Can anyone help shed light on this subject and tell me what I need to do/not do to fly in each of these countries legally? Thanks, Justin
