    Anyone else noticed this?

    When I go to make a clip, I firstly do a fly over using waypoints to cover the general area before doing the fine detail. I have noticed that the camera doesn't point directly forward but 'crabs' sideways at a slight yaw angle while in auto pilot. It can make for some nice footage, but isn't always usable.

    If you want to see an example, look at some of my YT clips - link in the signature below. The opening shot of 'Warrenpoint in July' is probably the best example.
