This is my fourth flight with my P4P, I'm slowly learning as I've never flown a Drone or edited video's before. So any and all commits welcome for any tips, good or bad...LOL.
Taken close to Wallace Falls in Washington State.

Disable RTH if flying within the the trees, select hover or land in the event of loss of signal.

To eliminate the jittering when you pan change your video setting to Manual. Your shutter speed should be twice than your frame per second.
As far as disabling the RTH, I am only talking for myself. If I wouldn't be living in Canada where by law I cannot fly further than 500m and LOS, I wouldn't disable RTH. What if I send the drone 2km away, I have no idea where exactly is or I cannot get closer to reconnect? I may be wrong  but I want to be safe.

Callatis:

But wouldn't  you consider disabling RTH if you were flying within line of sight AND below treetop level, that is, within the trees? Then, Hover might just be the best for loss of signal...

DGarmon75 - good job of filling the frame with the forest and stream; some nice stills in your footage.

Thanks, I'm trying to learn as much as I can. LOL. I'm use to shooting photos but Videos is a whole new field for me so it's a learning curve. My biggest hurdle was flying through, nerves, I bet I'm shaking after each flight..LOL.

Flying near trees, I like wide spaces. I am not comfortable with determining distances to objects when looking into the tablet's screen.

Aloha Garmon,

     Try these suggestions from previous threads.  Take your time and test out the options following the reasoning in the commentaries.  Nice imagery.  BTW, I live and fly in the jungle.  I guess we have something about trees!

Aloha and Drone On!
