Not in tripod mode it is not!
More fun train spotting and trying to have smooth moves in tracking and panning...Not there yet, but I'm getting there slowly.

Very nice footage and location

Agree on the sound. Ordinal sound would have been nice.

Agreed re the sound....don't think Spark has a microphone does it? Think I can record sound from the phone at the same time, but then you'd just hear me cussin and a cursing as I try to fly / not-crash-into-a-tree etc...not pretty...should I find a steam train sound track on soundcloud or something?

You can always edit the ordinal sound and maybe use part of it. Sync it will however take time some time.

Cool video with a great subject.
Not a criticism, more a constrictive comment, personally i'd have tried to track the train more by using a slider type motion/dolly motion, rather than panning motion. But that said, it's all personal taste, and whatever works for you.

Thank you, i'm looking for constructive criticism just like this...do you mean match the train by flying lower along side?

Not necessarily drop down in height, but try and "slide" the drone sideways so it's more of smooth motion. Obviously it'll be a lot smoother, but slower, when in tripod mode.

(Hope this helps, and you don't mind the comments. I'm not great at explaining what I mean sometimes) LOL

Nice subject to practice on. Starts slowly and then speeds up.

You might want to turn off auto exposure and see if you like how that affects the brightness of your video. Or use the Auto Exposure lock function.

As long as you are not filming very fast moving subject or the drone is travelling at high speed you don't need to set them on Manual. The Video really looks good as it is.

With the White Balance you did a Great Job !
