I climbed a 1500 m mountain with some friends and flew my E-Starter from the peak. There was nowhere to land but I was happy as long as the camera survived. After all, it was inside a lot of foam. :)

I wish the weather was clearer. The haze and clouds make for a low contrast video. Had the wind direction been from the other direction I could have just plopped it down on the peak but it wasn't easy to get it down this time.

We're standing on the highest peak in the picture below. The one that looks like it's emitting smoke.

Wow, that was pretty wild! Alot of throttle management every time you got near the peak, it was interesting to listen to the motor rev up and down. Thanks for sharing, that was way cool.
