    Get more proficient at take off,s and landings. Work on your angles and dangles. Try circling around an object without being jerky. Point the craft one direction and fly in another. This is so when you get the camera you can get the good shots.

    Put it away for a while. If flying drones in in your blood, you'll soon miss it.
    If you end up NOT missing it after a while, maybe look into other hobbies?

    Camera work requires slow and easy control. I practice a lot of orbiting, slow strafing and fast descent at angle to avoid prop wash turbulence. Keeping everything as smooth and steady and often as slow as possible.

    If you're into more "excitement" FPV racing quad may be more satisfying?
