Love the aerials!!! What do you use to edit footage?

I use Final Cut Pro for editing and color.

Nice video however this ultimately goes to show why drones will be banned in the next 5 years - you can't account for military or coastguard aircraft suddenly showing up. It's only gonna take a drone to down an aircraft carrying humans and it will be game over. And I say that as as drone owner. I live by the sea, we have the red arrows showing up out of the blue at like 300ft all the time, the coastguard choppers and loads of military craft. Scares the hell outta me.

Yeah it was a little unnerving . I was in class G uncontrolled airspace and at a max of 186 feet from where I took off according to the flight Log and these guys show up out of the blue.

186ft from where you took off, it looks to me like you were elevated though already? Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to sound accusing in any way just thinking through a scenario, see  - what would have happend if a drone had gone through the air intake of one of those jets? plane goes down etc etc, in a court of law I don't suppose us as the drone owners would have a leg to stand on? you'd like to think that those jets (and most craft for that matter) would be higher than 400ft however it gets a bit of a grey area when your elevated. 400ft above sea level or even ground level is hard to work out when your say, on a mountainside 1200ft above sea level eh? And we've all seen rescue helicopters come rolling through at a couple of hundred foot eh. Even greyer is the scenario when your in the middle of nowhere and you take your drone up to 1000ft....2000ft - theres videos all over the net of people doing that and a jet on military manouvers comes screaming through. I love my drone, and I love flying it but I genuinely think that there are going to be some huge changes in the ability to fly them in anything other than controlled areas in the future. Of course that wont stop people flying them too close to airports or structures or people, there are always the idiots that ruin it for all the rest of us. Just food for thought :-)

Are you insinuating I did something I shouldn't have? Its hard to tell your tone from a comment on a forum. You are more than welcome to look at the flight log and reference it back to the video. It is linked a few posts above yours. I never flew more than 186 feet above where I took off from and I didn't fly far from that point. Don't know why you're bringing sea level into it at all. By that logic I was flying at 7000 feet or so and I should be sentenced to death or whatever the FAA thinks is appropriate.

How do you get the sound of the Jets

on iOS your iPhone or iPad will actually record ambient noise while you are recording. That being said I didn't like the sound because we were talking and shouting (with excitement) so it was no good. So I got some royalty free jet sound and I did a fade in and fade out to make it sound as if it was passing.

Mmee- im absolutely NOT accusing you of doing any wrong, I find this whole scenario interesting on a "what if" basis only. The flight was fine - no incidents, end of story. It just highlights how easy it is for something fast moving to enter the picture (so to speak) at a very rapidly pace and asks questions of how quickly as drone pilots would we be able to get ourselves out of the situation safely. That's all. Drone flying for the masses is in its infancy still, long way to go with regards to safety for both us the pilots and other commercial aircraft pilots. Hope I haven't caused offence.

Nope you hadn't, I just wasn't sure of what exactly you were saying. I am a commercial pilot for a living and I have had other pilots in the air advise of drone sightings during the final approach into San Diego international one time at around 4000 feet supposedly. It made me a bit nervous because a drone could very easily destroy a jet engine.

I actually used stabilization software to make the panning appear more smooth. That is why that shot specifically looks a little less sharp compared to the rest. The stabilization applies a bit of a crop factor so it is zoomed in a bit.

Yeah same here but I think it looks cool. But that is exactly why I bought DJI Care Refresh. So I would feel more comfortable doing more risky shots.

Smart plan - I'd opted out, and when I decided I wanted it later - at this point it's a bit too late i think =/

I think you can still get it after the 48 hours deal. You just have to submit proof that your Mavic is in good operating condition.

First what flight mode are you in. Did you do stick calibration, and have you paired up RC with AC

Could do with some more information.

Thanks! The video was a bit choppy during that pan show but I stabilized it with final cut pro.
