    It's late August, but summer is still on with tropical humidity levels and an occasional passing summer storm. Despite the storm to the north, calm winds have setup a glassy smooth surface on Jeffers Pond in Prior Lake, Minnesota. Portions of this film were shot in autonomous flight mode with pre-selected waypoints and advanced image stabilization. Filmed with a DJI Phantom Vision and edited with Sony Vegas. Enjoy!

    You found a great location for video or a photo. The still pond perfectly reflects the sunset. I see in a lot of videos in which the panning is a bit too quick as in yours. It is a skill which takes a while to perfect (especially those of us who don't have FPV). I'm not saying I've got it down. I need a lot of practice but I think a smooth pan says a lot of a video. Our (Phantom owners) equipment hinders us due to the quality of the camera. It doesn't seem to keep up with fast paced movement therefore we have to take it slow.
