Great job for the first flight! I flew for weeks in open fields to understand p3's command and responsiveness. After that i started to fly filming somenthing (a tower or a castle or an old farm).

Aloha Dale,

     Nice effort.  Smooth rotations will help you, actually every videographer, enormously.  Your P3A has Multiple Flight Modes that allow Intelligent Flight Options.  One of the most common used is Point of Interest (POI).  Learn how to use it and it will help you in many ways.  One little known use for POI is to tilt the camera up and straight across the orbit for an amazing PAN.  Between POI and PAN, you will discover a lot.

     I have attached images of an old thread that really helps flesh out aerial videography with Phantoms, especially the P3 series.  You can download the images and print them out for use in the field.

     Hope this helps!  Looks like you have a real nice location.

Aloha and Drone On!

Great job! Why your max resolution is 720P? Did you upload sd file or mobile or tablet file?

What resolution are you filming at? The YouTube video is only at 720p and to get a better film/sharing material you can use 2.7k at 30 fps (I have the same drone (If you use PAL there is only a 25 fps option))
And if ur alredy filming at 1080p/2.7k it may be the editing software. I recoment HitFilm as a free editing software
Hope I could help you with something
