LOL..... I don't even think the biggest flying tanker would need that much room to complete a turn for another run..... Nice view though. But seriously, no your are not too close at that range. I checked Temp restrictions for Fire and your outside Temp restriction circle by quite a distance.....
Here is a good source to use when planning flight and flight temp restrictions area, just happens to show that fire but its way off from you....no worries..

Nice! I like doing those 360 panoramic videos too. One suggestion, slow it down some. By the time you got back to the starting point I was a bit dizzy.

Thanks for the feedback, this was only my third flight and that was also my first video, do you use the pan knob or turn the H when you do 360?

I realized when watching I still had it in rabbit from accent and didn't trim it back.

I'm not good enough yet to be consistent with rotating the entire bird, so I us the the camera rotation knob and with the camera switch in the bottom position. I know I'll get nice consistent speed in my video... Just helps.
