    snerd, thank you for the gimbal suggestion, I'll definitely try that.

    Is there a similar solution to control panning?

    hey skyhigh nice video...

    i too, am brand new to the phantom and someone correct me if I am wrong, but isn't flying backwards and descending at the same time getting close to a CSC? not trying to be a smart ***, but I saw you do this and i just want to make sure I don't crash mine.

    Just turn it around for a selfie video, while landing, so you won't have any concerns!
