    I was a little nervous with the takeoffs and landings but everything went smooth. Here's a little video of the trip.

    Great work. I love Love LOVE that you used more than "just" aerial footage. Granted aerial is great but it can be boring and gets kind of "old" sometimes.

    Well done through and through. LOVE the music choice.

    At 1:27 the whites are all wash out. Is any setting on the P3 that will help with this? Anything I can do in post production?

    Are you using custom or auto white balance?

    I soften alot of my footage with a custom setting of 5K or 6K and grade it in post with Premier Pro. I also use either a 4 or 8 stop polar pro filter when shooting in bright sunlight. This helps with reducing blow outs in the whites.

    This might help you for future shots.

    Any special flight settings on the P3A when on a boat like that? I hear all these rumors about radar jamming the signal and splashing the drone in the ocean.

    Radar was on. No signal loss what so ever.
