So now with this new information of where I can and can't fly I chose a new location. It's up near Kashi Fukuoka which has a large dam combined with a park. The cheery blossoms were just coming out and were about a week behind before they go into full bloom.
On this day I had some high hopes for taking lots of video but ran into 2 problems. Huge power lines and cellular antenna towers situated very close to the park. I was getting many warnings on my iPhone and decided to fly a little more cautiously as I didn't want to have any issues.
Overall I was able to get some fun shots in with the kids and learned a lot of techniques for flying my Phantom.
