I live in Monticello, just down the road about 30 min.  I have a P4 and a mavic on order,I should get the shipping notice any day now,  if they really ship in a week.  Fingers crossed.
When it warms up I will go up to the new dam at Delhi.  It is a really cool design. I really like lakes and rivers to shoot.  I am also planning a field planting and harvesting video this spring and fall.

I live in the Quad Cities area...  P4Pro just arrived today. Off the top of my head - River boats, barges, and bridges spanning the Mississippi River /should/ make for some nice footage. Winter time flyover of Adventure Land if you are in the DSM area. Will post more as I think of additional areas. Happy flying!

After a good charging I just had to give it a try,  25 degrees and  very windy.  Wind warnings but it flyes great, not like the P4 but stable , shot some trial video, looks good,  still waiting for my filters.
I flew it with my apple mini 2 and my Samsung 7'edge, both worked great.   I am looking forward to trying all the bells and whistles.  I used go app 4.   Flawless flights.

I have been planning a trip to Adventureland. Unfortunately, it's considered Class E airspace from Ankeny. Still, I would like to go if we ever get some decent snow.

Also still waiting for our P4 to get back from the world's worst support service. But I'll be sure to post some footage here when I get it.

I just can'take seem to let things alone.  I decided to add some bling. I have flown it 3 times , cold and 20 to 25 m/hour wind. It flies great.  Got my lenses in. Waiting for better weather to shoot some video.

This is and uncensored video at my office with my new  DJI Mavic Pro.  No filters, every thing on auto. Judge for your self, but to me this looks good.  I can hardly wait for some better weather.  Have notice when I get into high winds, the camera shaking is noticeable.  Normal conditions , no issue.  I don't think this camera in poor conditions, is as steady as my P4.
But the P4 won't fit in my coat pocket.  Praying for good weather. " Living the Good Life here in IOWA".    Phil

wow that mavic has great image quality looks just like the phantom4 pro! although I am very surprised to see jello in your shot seems strange to me to see that on a mavic other than that looks great nice work! ill try to post something quick today if I can figure out how to post on here. I did a promo video last week before a dart tournament had 15 mins to do it turned out pretty well

I was in 4k auto and have had that issue befor. I usually shoot in the 1080 range at 30 frames per secound. And it seems to go away.  There are a lot of entries in the forum on the jello. Also I was getting wind warnings that day

I think I have fixed my disconnect problem,  I purchased another ipad mini 2, 32 for $215 from best buy.

That is a lot of dart boards. These guys take good videos Indoors..

I just got the nodded to film the Anamosa motor cycle hill climb this summer. I think that will be fun. I am planning on using my P4 and the Mavic.   One will be to the side and one will be over head.  The  course set should help with repeating the same run time after time.  I will make them a 5 min promo film for the web sit and a longer copulation. I have a portible recording mixer that I will add a sure 57 mic for the sounds. You guy are welcome to join me.

Anamosa Iowa on 151.just out side Anamosa.  Across the Wapsi river from scooters bar. This is a semi pro event.  Your friends are welcome. I would hope to get copies of the footage. I love to put videos together.  I think this could be a lot of fun.
We will have priority for all shooting locations. I will bring a tent for shade and a table for the gear. Phil

This is my first video with my new Mavic, Still  working on the settings for the video.  I grew up on this resort on the Maquoketa River ie Lake Delhi.  That means that my parents owned the resort and i pumped gas and mowed the grass while my friends were water skiing.

The day cruise was very cool, but those first night shots with the the sunset were amazing. That camera on the P4 pro is just out standing.  I loved the shot where the cars spead up and went under the drone to.  Great job.
