Hello, check out my newest video and let me know what you think. I experimented with a few different things, and would greatly appreciate any input you all have. Thanks!

The landscape is really beautiful. But I notice that the cloud is a little bit jumpy, especially at 2:22. I don't know if it only happens on my PC. Anyway, nice flying.

Thanks, Thor!
Yeah, I noticed this too, in a few scenes. If you or anyone else knows what causes this/how to avoid it, that info would be much appreciated!

Does it also happen on the original version? If it is possible, you can provide me with the original clip from the SD, upload to Dropbox and paste the link here, I'll check.

Beautifully done.  Nice slow flying, great subjects.  Man, you did a lot of driving, huh?  I can only offer one suggestion for improvement:  Increase the amount of time that your descriptive names display in the lower left corner.  I found that I wasn't able to read most of them because they disappeared too quickly.  Since you did such a great job of placing them out of the subject display, having those names sit there a bit longer would not do anything negative to your videos.  By the by, I grew up in Chicago, moved to California after military service during Viet Nam.  I now like to say that "Chicago is a nice place to be FROM".  ;)

Really nice Bill! Just stay from metal. You were too close for comfort in some of the shoots. Otherwise really good.

Yeah, I noticed that some of the names were a little short. I will make them a touch longer next time.
And yeah Chicago is still a great city to live in currently, too. You just need to know the areas to avoid.
AKA - the south and west side...

Thank you!
All of the shots that looked like they were right next to metal were all handheld shots, where I'm holding my Mavic in one hand and controlling the gimbal with the other.

Thank you! Yes, the conditions were not the best at times, but being from the windy city (Chicago), you have to get used to flying in some wind, otherwise you will never get your drone off the ground.

Very nice. Good editing.  I  visited most of those on vacation this past summer and could film very few because of excessive winds during my stay. Thanks for posting.

It looks to me like a video artifact that is caused by either your video editing software or something going on with your write speed/bandwith as the video is being recorded to the card in your Mavic. I am not well versed in the proper settings on the drone you need to use, but it's definitely caused by some kind of slowdown. If this appears in other videos, that may be what's going on. If not, it may just be a glitch caused by interference during the recording process. The video is still awesome.

Yes, I had a lot of bad luck with the weather on the Michigan side, and was only able to get a couple of those lighthouses, when I was hoping to go farther north and get all of them. I plan on going back out that way and to the U.P. next spring and making a part 2 to this video...
