    cool vid! what settings do you use on the gopro? what software do you use to edit/post?

    120fps 1080 is fun, but imo 2.7k 60fps is better, the framerate and resolution in the native videos is amazing and they aren't size-prohibitive like 4K videos are.

    I'm by no means a good editor, I don't know how to fark with the color settings and what have you so I just use GoPro Studio to chop and export videos.. for Youtube I use their Youtube preset and during the export step pick full HD 1920x1080 but keep the 60fps, and since Youtube now allows 60fps they look pretty sweet imo.
    here's a recent example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AuytU8hAAQ

    not trying to say anything bad about your video, just share what I've learned

    Are you satisfied with the "H4-3D"-gimbal?

    btw is there a big improvement in comparision to the H3-3D?


    I guess you have shot that video?!
    Very nice stuff!
    I like the fluency from the pictures :)

    The actual operation of the H4-3D is identical to the H3-3D, the only difference is that it should be balanced for the heavier Hero 4 (so you don't have to add as much of your own counterweight) and also the back plate is designed so that it does not press that wifi/settings button on the left side, which now sticks out from the body of the gopro unlike on the Hero 3
    sometimes the H3-3D backplate will cause that button to be pressed when the hero 4 is mounted

    other than those 2 things, it's the same 3 motors and function.

    re: my video thanks! especially in aerial/flight videos I think 60fps makes a big difference
