    First private airport in Spain. 4 Kilometer runway, ILS CAT IIIb...

    In April 2012, the airport was closed after just three years in operation... It had not received scheduled flights since December 2011

    It has been recently (and finally) bought. Waiting for the new project !

    good video - did you adjusted settings in dji go to smooth movement of the camera or its just pure practice made you move camera so smooth ?

    I made some adjustments, and also trying to be gentle with the movements... but the settings worked great:

    main controller settings
    - return to home 80 m
    - max fight altitude 500 m
    - advance settings
    - EXP 0.4 0.25 0.4
    - EXP Sport 0.4 0.35 0.4
    - Sensitivity 100 90 110
    - Remote controller signal lost RETURN TO HOME
    - Smart return to home ON

    Visual navigation settings
    - ON

    Remote controller settings
    - Gimbal wheel speed 60

    Gimbal
    - Advanced settings 20 ON 22 OFF (try ON to see difference)

    General settings
    - Metric
    - Enable hardware encoding
    - Show flight route
    - Cache map
    - Video cache RECORDING
    - Autocleanup ON​

    About the airport, it was really bad timing... they opened when the crisis struck in Spain. As it is private, the government had to intervene too... a lot of money borrowed from local banks, etc. A big mess !
    It has been auctioned recently and we hope it will be different now !

    That was really fine cinematography. Then well edited and selection of music. I hope to do that level of work. I used to shoot with a real SteadiCam. This is that on steroids. Thanks for showing us this.

    I just realised...this is the airport from Top Gear! Where they did the top speed run.
