    Has anyone ever had any issues flying the Typhoon H out over the ocean?

    Yes. I’ve flown out off cliff tops over Pacific Ocean with no problem other then over tightening of my sphincter. Obviously don’t do it during back third of battery power (typically after ten minutes) and be aware of wind that can fight you on return to shore. You’ll need ND or Cinema filters to reduce the water glare depending on sun angle. Also, your depth of field relative to Typhoon H distance to you becomes trickier with the flat ocean color and the H color. Well placed strobes help here. And it’s a good time to have a spotter officially for added pilot situational awareness. The crash compilation videos show that DJI cameras can film fish but not so sure about our CGO design.
