    I've only seen one video on Kauai posted on this forum. Visited in September and got a chance to try some of the autopilot app modes. Thought I'd share a quick 2min vid of some beautiful highlights of the island from North, South, East, and West. No slow go music here, so hold on for fast ride....Enjoy!

    great job.

    that shot by the hotel at the end looked crazy windy. how windy was it that day and did it stay dry from the waterfall mist?

    Beautiful job, loved the blow hole and pineapple patches. Professional looking, we could take lessons. Thanks for sharing.

    Very windy over hotel and at end shot with car. Gusts 30-40mph. The car shot was a "follow me" that turned into a blow away. It kept the car in the view so I kept the shot .
    No issue with moisture from waterfall as the mist was lower and to sides.

    Thanks! Had a damaged gimbal so some shots were a little shaky in the wind

    Yep...one of the issues with autopilot app. Been asking them for this for awhile... When manual flying, I usually do this unless I forget after a start/stop recording.

    I lost my first P3P inside a canyon due to wind gusts up to 40mph (I know as the bird stalled at full speed). So I was moved to do a tribute. This also shows my determination (and arrogance) to conquer the canyon 3 days later

    I loved that spin around the car at the end. Great control work there.

    A lot of my cuts are accidental. That shot was an autopilot follow me that turned into a blow away when wind gusts shot up over 30mph. It kept my car in the view so it turned out nice by accident.

    Yea, it was intentional as I tried different LUTs. My favorite is the M31 cinema LUT (used in the last shot with follow-me of SUV). This one (or similar) is used in many movies like Star Trek and the new Moby Dick movie.

    Which app do you use the M31 LUT with?

    I use Sony movie studio and Sony Vegas and have the free vision color LUT plugin. I use it for all my LUTs and works great!
