Are you only shooting photos? If so, you don't need to use an ND filter. You could just set the camera to auto and let it select the best settings. That works just fine in most cases.

For me it really depends on what you're doing. For video, I would rather choose my ND strength based on what frame rate/iso I want to use rather than choose my frame rate/iso based on ND strength.

Typically you want to use ISO100.  And lets say you are shooting in 30fps then for video is more important than stills you typically want the shutter to be double what your fps is.  So if 30fps then try and go for 1/60 shutter speed.  IF not using a ND filter you will most definitely be overexposed.  The filter will allow this more easily without being overexposed allowing for some great videos.

I use a ND32 filter 99% of the time and here are my typical settings.
ISO100
4k@30fps
Shutter 1/60-1/80
White balance 6700

This may help if you're new to ND filters. As others have said, Video is where you need ND to slow the shutter down for a cinematic blur. Stills, only really if you are looking for a long exposure, which not sure a drone is the right toll for that one.
