    I'd like to thank you all for your supportive feedback. I've now taken my drone out again for a second flight, this time using an ND filter on my GoPro.



    Again, any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Two questions I have are:

    How to improve the quality of the GoPro footage? Even when using the 4K setting, it doesn't appear to be 4K and is quite blurry when viewed on a 4K TV.

    Even in daylight the GoPro footage seems to be noisy, how do I stop this?

    Gear: phantom2, GoPro hero 4 black, black pearl monitor, immersionrc 5.8ghz 25mw, fat shark cp antennas, iOSD mini.

    Pretty location for sure, you have a good eye.
    Manual or auto? Looks lke shutter speed was slightly high for frame speed.

    I kept trying to see if the green would lose definition and sharpness but the route changed before I could view.
    Maybe slow down shutter speed an tilt camera down a little more when swinging towards your light source/sun so you can get even more detail.

    I liked the location and the route flown.
    I try to fly/film at a right angle to the sun for best nd results.

    These are things I would think about if I just shot that scene

    Thank you! It was south of Manchester, took ages to travel to.

    Thanks for the advice as well I've not had it long so I'm learning as I go along, only my second flight with the fpv.
