    Gotten the hang of basic flying down pretty well. Next step is to move into obstacle and stable stacking shots. Its hard to get friends to use for practice.

    Attempted some of that tracking in this video. Overall, theres still a while to go before really mastering and maneuvering an UAV. Jello is there, though not at bad at times when shooting in forested areas or as it got darker. Really getting ticked with the auto exposure on this camera :[

    Usual settings were used, 2.7k Wide shot Protune. No ND was used. Not a fan of the way the camera renders out the blues in the sky. Even on the flat pro tune mode, the sky is clearly saturated in blue. Cant wait to see what the new GoPro brings.

    Featuring co-pilots Sergeant Sparky and her assistant Rubber Ducky.

  2. Beginning to get more comfortable with my DJI. Brought it out to the park for some more practice. I still need to tame jello issues. I have an ND but have yet to use it. I need to find a way to secure it to the phantom in case it slips off the go pro lens mid flight. Not a fan of the rolling shutter or 8 bit codec either but I gotta work with it.

    Didn't use any software to fix jello or fish eye distortion. Shot pro tune, 2.7k wide and 1080 medium. Graded in Davinci.

  3. Been sitting on this footage for ages. Decided to cut a little footage, work on some new grades, and get this video out. Onwards with the ever going quest to make gopro footage not look like gopro footage.
