Excellent video!  Could you share your camera settings with us as the colors look very true to reality.

Glad you like it man!  For a long time I shot in D-Log, but I could never get the colors to look as good after grading them (It's probably because I am not that good at color grading).  I used True Color and then played around in Premiere Pro with a little more grading.  

I also was using the Polar Pro Filters...various ones for different times of the day

Even though I have had the drone since last November, I have not had much chance to get out and fly with it.  Horrible winter weather and various other commitments since then.  So I have not arrived at any particular settings favorite yet, and that's why I was asking.

I am back and forth between True Color and D-Cinelike. But mainly True Color because I like the vivid style it produces. I actually desaturated this to 85%

Well, obviously you can answer. If you had registered it, you would know.

I'd asked in order to learn how your experience went.

Here's a link. Glad you didn't get caught.

Haha, I think you know what I mean...!

But as far as bringing it into Mexico, I had no problem whatsoever.  Carried on and passed thru TSA at LaGuardia without being checked

Interesting. Thanks for the link. I went to Puerto Vallarta in February and scoured the internet looking for information on country restrictions. At the end of the day I only found very few rules. I opted to follow Canadian drone rules (since they are fairly strict) while i was there (less one which was flying over buildings which i am convinced has more to do with privacy laws in Canada, not safety.)

I am heading back at the end of November/December so if I need a permit to fly I will try to figure out how to get one.

So I did some more research on this subject.  Anything under 2kg does not require registration.  There are several articles which agree with the one below

According to several articles, it says anything under 2kg does not require registration...can you link your source?  (Not being combative, just want to make sure I have the proper information)

http://www.uavsystemsinternational.com/drone-laws-by-country/mexico-drone-laws/

I linked upthread to the actual law, which says nothing about not needing to register drones under 2 Kg.
