    Its a beautiful spot, really dissapointed at myself not being abit more adventurous with the drone due to the wind :(

    Had the D810 with me but prefered the inages I got with the drone lol

    Lovely golden light, made for a very relaxing clip - you wouldn't know it was windy! Great how stable these quads are

    Yes they're amazing. Looking up at it and it was getting blown pretty hard by the wind.

    Love using it !

    Very nice. I'd be interested to hear about the camera setup and postprocessing.

    If I am being honest I barely touched the video out of the drone other than splicing parts of it up. I manually set the white balance to 5700k-6000k

    I am only really learning adobe premiere at the moment

    I am awaiting my set of filters and hopefully that will improve things

    Regarding the camera settings I used D Log with sharpness, saturation and contrast all set to minus 1

    Shot at 2.7k 30fps

    Landing the drone was tough due to strong gusts of wind, should have caught it!

    I was, was real strong wind and could hear the quad really fighting hard to maintain its spot.

    Really annoyed at not pushing it a bit harder I was just nervous lol. The views up there was epic.

    Great footage. And nice edits- all you need do now it work with the contrast & saturation a bit. Do to the strong backlights & flare the contrast is flat- but can be easily improved in Premiere.
    Where exactly is this?

    Hi guys

    I've had a brain fart and can't for the life of me find where I set the return to home minimum altitude. Can anyone help?

    I would be more worried about the wind currents around the cliff than getting out over the water. The more you fly, the more confidence you will build.
    Great video and I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.
