    Looks awesome, what camera settings were you running and what program did you edit it in?

    practice on your yaw movement. sometimes too fast or not steady enough in that video.

    I think you did an excellent job. Most of the time when you hear "first shot at editing" you expect to see a long video with drawn out scenes. Not here you nailed it.

    Will do, thanks. Perhaps turning gains down might help. I've since turned down the gimbal sensitivity.

    Thanks. On my youtube channel there's a couple of videos that are just what you mentioned, long drawn out shots, bad music etc(bad videos). I've learned that music is key and that you don't need to use every second of footage that you shoot. That footage is the edit from 3 batteries worth of shooting. I just don't need to use it all to hopefully achieved the desired effect.

    Nice job, the gimbal tilt was a little distracting but overall a nice job

    Ah yes that makes sense. I was wondering how you nailed it on the first run LOL!

    We shot literally hours of footage in the spring (2 days worth) and when all the editing was done I'd estimate they used a total of 60 seconds of aerial footage.
