    Flew around Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas yesterday and decided to cut a short video together. Goal was to take some random, unplanned video and sequence it together to make an interesting clip. Some of own thoughts and comments below the video.

    Used iMovie to create the clip and do basic color correction. Added music from URL at end of video.

    This park is built over a highway so it is complete metal and threw off the compass. This means no hovering for me and it was a little windy. I did my best to either flow with the wind or fight it smoothly depending on the shot.

    Couple areas for improvement:
    1. Need lens shade to prevent glare
    2. Need to remove prop guards as they get in the shot
    3. I cut out a lot of my panning shots as I was moving too fast, need to slow down
    4. As it was an unplanned flight I didn't even go up far enough for a good shot to capture the whole park. Need to add to the list every time I fly just in case I need it.

    Like to hear your feedback and areas of improvement as well!
