    Any tips for smooth panning? It looks so good on everyone's videos except mine!

    Turning your Yaw down in the settings will help with smooth pans.

    I have a Yaw set at 20 and lengthen the RC sticks to also get a smoother pan.

    It's all about the serenity

    If you are trying to get a 360 degree video of the area you can set your drone to do a point of interest and point your camera more level with the horizon and get a nice smooth video. That is what I do to keep it from being jerky. The other settings are nice too like way point etc. They are all good to use for different situations.

    No settings would help getting the yaw movement slowed down like I wanted on P4, ended up installing mod on yaw as had done on previous P2's, switch and 20ohm pot. It made a tremendous difference. I have examples on Vimeo, vVertigo. Some is manual yaw and some by Litchi. Sullivan's Lighthouse is favorite.

    If you shoot in 2.7 or 4k and you are ok to export the final video at 1080p you can make advantage of the higher resolution to create a pan in post production, and it will look super smooth....

    I've just shared a tutorial for doing the panning effect in post production in this forum, check it out if you want
