    YEAH!

    Seems like he had a blast! I remember my first powered vehicle . I finally wore down the rear wheels enough to be able to drift it . Such a sense of freedom!


    You may want to go into the DJI Go app and slow your gimbal YAW settings. They are very quick in this video and give it a jerky nature when you refocus on the subject. Its like someone snapping their head to look at something rather than a slow sweeping motion.

    Also , dissolves for transitions are cool and all but most don't use em too much in favor of just a quick cut to the next scene/ clip.

    Also stopping on his reaction from a close up and allowing the video to pause for a beat to send home his facial reaction and then slight reverse and play over adds drama to the moment or moments.

    Welcome !

    Practice , practice , practice. I often fly without a real sense of taking footage just to get a feel for moving the yaw very precisely. Just flying and looking at the real time video feed. Some things that have helped me are trying to "anticipate" when and where my subject will move to. Then I can begin to get subject recentered within the frame.

    Also , I just thought of this. There is a GRID View that one can use to get their subjects centered more easily within the DJI Go app. Its essentially an overlay on the real time video screen of lines that form a grid pattern. Kinda helpful after using it for a while.

    Keep em coming !
    Whats your editor of choice?

    Yeah I seen that Grid view haven't messed much with that. And for sure I'll keep them coming. I use finalcut X for editing

    Are you just touching the screen using the automatic Contrast settings during that video ? Touching the areas with the least and most light.
