    Very smooth! Stock controller or Futaba? I presume P2 with 3D and GPro? ND filter?

    Thx!

    It is with the Futaba controller with expos on the channel controlling rudder - smoother pans but still needs some work. H3-3D - no ND filter. What I really want is a polarizer.

    When you say "Futaba controller with expos on the channel controlling rudder", what is that? (Sorry still have stock controller)

    I wanted the additional functionality a non-stock controller would give me. When I made that decision it was so I could have both manual flight and a switch for forced failsafe. I later learned that I could also adjust "expos." This is an oversimplification but it essentially means I can change the sensitivity of some stick actions. I can now throw a switch on the controller and the rudder will be much slower/less sensitive, allowing more filmic pans. I can throw the switch back and return to "normal" control.

    Ah! Got it. I saw a video on this recently. That is probably the main reason is consider upgrading to a 3rd party controller for sure. Smooth slow movements are everything in video.

    Again, great job!
