    I will be putting my P2V+ up tonight and filming the town's fireworks show from a safe distance. I will be launching from my driveway which is about 1 mile from ground-zero and "might" fly it in 1/4 to 1/2 mile and "park" it 3/4 to 1/2 mile from the display.

    What should I set my camera to?
    I normally film at 1080p/30 and leave everything else at default settings but have been playing with 720p/60 lately for smoother panning.
