All the time - here's one I just did. I know how to use Final Cut and used to own it but I don't need it for this basic editing. I'm just a hobbyist - not a true artist or photog (should be obvious).

Well I would say that was quite artistic. Very nice. The shot over the Manor House was cool., as was the shot with the cows. Was the bird in the air for that shot , or was it a walking shot? Either way it was good!.  Thanks for sharing.

Very cool! Well done! That was fun. I like the fast part low over the ground. Have not seen anybody do that before, so it was cool to see something new!  The night shot with the other birds was cool as well. Nice editing with the changing tunes, etc. Thumbs up!

Cows was walking back from the mid-island shot! I just thought it added to the scene!

I guess I learned something - that it may be a good idea to mix some land and water based video with the aerials.

Thanks for the kudos. It's fun seeing the world from a new perspective.

Cows always seem to like RC's. I seen a few videos of them following a RC car. Now a Phantom!

Yes, iMovie is a very simplistic program and makes editing a breeze.  Nothing a real professional would use but for the amaetur videographer it is perfect.

A few examples using DJI Phantom 3 Advanced and iMovie:

Moab, UT:
Boulder, CO:
And a good old Wreck:

IMovie should work fine for HD but is unlikely to perform well with 4K. Final Cut Pro has been shown to out perform Premier when handling 4K files.

4K videos still cannot be well supported by most popular applications like iMovie mainly because of the ultra high video resolution and the format compatibility problems. In light of this, it is quite necessary to convert DJI Phantom 3 4K video to Apple InterMediate codec(1080p would be the best settings.), which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.

Yes, I use iMovie. I'm a photographer not a videographer. And, actually you can edit 4K video in iMovie.
