    Thanks for the vid. I feel that it is very informative. Actually, with the red front lights on the P3, they can be turned off from within the DJI Go app. I always keep them off. Again, thanks for the video.

    Thanks for the videos. Good info on ISO settings. Nice to know the uav won't fall from the sky in a light mist or light rain. I still would not take that chance.

    Desert how are you enabling full screen pic previews like in your other video? That setting is not on my app. I've got the same mini as you.

    You keep going on about using masking tape etc to cover up the front red led's..

    You can turn them off in the settings on the app.

    Do you need to have video caching ON in order to see the pic you took? I tried lastnight setting up for pics using ISO 800 with a 1 second shutter and anytime I pressed the play button it would load the screen and just a spinning indicator in the center and never show me the photo.

    Nope it should always show a short preview after the shot. Try to reinstall the app on your device. Im shooting on an ipad air 2 fyi. Also go into setting and set photo playback to 2 seconds

    Your night tips have been great for my shots, but alas, preview is NOT on my app. I've got the iPad Mini 2, and have now been thru several iterations of the app release. It's simply not there. I don't know what build you've got, but it's not on any other YouTube videos I've seen. I'd love it too....

    I have the P3A and I don't think we have the preview feature.

    These are my favorite kind of videos. I love to watch how people use their P3's. Great job and thanks for sharing!
