    Hello everyone,

    I took the advice of this blog - http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/build- ... lticopter/ - and bought a cheap intro version bird to learn how to fly.

    Glad I did, my first 2 short flights were a huge success. I'm really liking the this platform.

    So what's everyone using for video editing software?

    Thanks

    I use Windows movie maker for the short cuts and AVS to make the complete video.

    Re: Video editing software

    If you want free, you can't beat Lightworks.

    http://www.lwks.com/

    It's professional grade software used by major studios - has 32 and 64 bit versions - Mac, PC and Linux. One limitation of the free version is that it will save in max resolution of 720p. If you want to create 1080 videos, you'll need to fork over $8/mo, $80/yr or $280 outright.

    There are excellent tutorial videos to get you started and more advanced tutorials on YouTube.

    I'm a Mac user, so it was iMovie for me several years ago then I moved to Final Cut Pro X. Brilliant software (if you like the Mac platform).

    That is quite a serious drawback.
    For free Moviemaker is probably the best option but steer clear of the silly stock effects.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll hopefully post a video either tonight or tomorrow of my first few flights.

    Take care.
