    Are there any sort of setting that can help make the video while night flying better? For example I lengthened the shutter speed in camera mode to two seconds and got this

    But I cant find any settings like this for video.

    Make sure you turn off the lights.

    Slower shutter and faster iso are your only options. Theses cameras work well in good light but we can't expect miracles. It is basically a high end mobile phone camera sensor with a better lens

    I have found on average that 2 seconds seems to be the sweet(relatively) sweet spot...

    Anything longer your playing more into the hands of chance because you need very no wind conditions and also no gusts of wind where ever its hovering....

    I find if you go into camera mode, not video mode, that you get more resolution.
    I'm still learning too.

    I am an experienced photographer and have also flown full sized aircraft and RC models. I am STILL totally stunned that you can take 2 second exposure with no blurring or streaking of lights. It is flipping awesome it really is - a flying tripod it is so stable!!!
