Very nice footage - and a spectacular Pine forest! Am impressed how you got the first tracking shot with the RC signal getting through all those trees with snow on!! Also a great help with your ideal settings - will definitely try your setup out, as I'm wondering how well they will work in a more windy environment?

Works well in windy situations you just have to fight the wind a bit more!

I saw the same in one of my videos where I used warp stabilizer, I think it must be the codec.

With these setting I don´t need to stabilise. The artefacts from stabilisation are pretty grim.

Depends on the wind too though, not just flight settings.

Wow that's conservative, don't think I'd get much flying done around here with that rule. The wind is vary rarely that low here even at dawn.

Swedrone, I am new at video, but is there an explanation to understand these numbers? What if I set a number higher or lower on the settings you posted? Thanks

Hmm. the default numbers give you good control and able to stop quickly when letting go of the sticks. If your a beginner you should stick with the factory setting. These are not optimal for smooth video however but  rather for security of your drone. Basically the numbers I use reduce the effect the control sticks have on your bird and since the slightest overreaction on the stick are shown on the video these and my settings takes care of that. You can try the "Tripod mode" in the settings it gives you almost the same effect.

you have most amazing flying skills. so close to the trees yet steady and smooth, incredible. i think ieven saw the tops of a dead tree move, so close you were. Your ability to sense the actual distance from objects and navigate a complex course is easilly the best i have seen by far.

Thank you very much! I use the CrystalSky monitor which helps me navigate with it´s superior brightness and enhanced screen. Very helpful when filming in D-Log setting where the image sent to the monitor is very dull. Hopefully DJI will upgrade to the possibility to use inmonitor LUT:s in the future!

Absolutely gorgeous footage.
I have to be honest though, as a beginning pilot some of these shots made me clench in terms of how close to the trees you got

Also, i've been going through my settings, you recommend to set Attitude to 0 but in the app it only allows me to set it as low as 20, could you confirm that one?

Regarding the cinematic mode I have some questions related to the sensitivity parameters

Attitude 0
Brake 69
Yaw movement Limit 50

Does anybody nows what do these numbers mean? do they have units such as deg/sec? Which are the maximum and minimum values?
