Be a little more choosy with your clips and edits. I really like some of your shots but I'd like to see more aerials and things you can only see with a drone. Minimize camera movements while flying and learn to CUT and throwaway footage that isn't good enough. It's tough to do but the end result is worth it. I really like this shot. Nice start though. I'd say you could cut it down to 2.5 minutes.

At some places you are flying very near persons.
Just my opinion: take care about it! Should be risky!

Nice first one.
Some things that I would suggest:
I love the music, but feel it does not suit your footage. I am visioning some fast moving landscape while flying above it or something. Not these random shots. (opinion of course)
Next: leave out these fast (unintentional) movements (gimbal or drone) and leave the good stuff in.
Also : make more various shots (like some high shots to introduce the location, some straight down shots etc.)
Maybe : leave out most of the shots with you two staring like you see a UFO
Most of all: tell a story (visually). Like you introduce the area with some overhead shots, make some nice visual shots straight down, some detail shots of you two walking from behind, introduce the bridge and leave with the sun in a high contrast back light shot. It takes a bit of thinking ahead, but that is the nice thing
You have the subject and some nice shots to do so you will make it work.
Love to see more from you!

Thank you for the comments. I never really anticipated making an edited video when I was shooting. The flight time was more about building confidence.

But I'm totally going to plan something more for the next video.

I know that feeling.
After you get home you realize you could have shot things different.
Very nice process. I like that

I agree with the comment about being picky with your clips.  I am always having to fight the urge to "show the people everything" but I have to remember that nobody cares about the 10-40 seconds that lead up to the one interesting part of my clip.  

A few weeks ago I flew with a couple of other Spark owners who fly almost exclusively in sport mode, just modulating the controls to keep from tilting the camera.  this allows them to get scenic shots but also to capture dramatic motion shots as well.
