    Went to see a friend working about a mile away. Too funny. Getting used to the gimbal controls. Kids loved it.

    Yeah, the text messages came fast after that. I'd told him that when my bird came I was going to buzz his house from mine... He laughed - he didn't believe me. He's a believer now.

    One thing I noticed from your video was that when you descend you don't have the camera pointed straight down. Obviously this was not your first visit to your friends house, but it was mine and I was wondering when you would descend into a tree... :eek:

    I used the default settings. I'm still learning what they all do.

    Yes, in hind sight I should have made the gimbal adjustment. Thought about that myself when editing the video.

    Thats awesome, sometimes I buzz over to my friends house thats a tad over 2 miles away on a GS mission. Buzz his house a bit then zoom back. Trips him out!

    I can only hope to get some quality footage such as this. I live in a rather dense population area and have very little worth viewing...aside from the Gas Processing plant I work at and perhaps the abandoned steel factory railroad depository

    So even when you're in "auto" mode the camera wheel, by default, will control the EV (Exposure Value). My guess is you're on the plus side too heavy - bring it back into check at 0 and go from there. Slick that DJI put that as the default control value when in auto mode.

    On a side note, the wheel buttons also click when pushed - just haven't found a place to use that for selection criteria.

    Open the advance camera mode. Its the button below the shutter button on screen the lowest one of I am remembering. Then it will allow you to click through all the different adjustments by clicking the wheel.
