Looking for advise on what others are using for the speed settings in Litchi waypoints to get a smooth unrushed video output?

A lot depends on how long and how far the mission is.   If you are going to be flying  a couple of miles you need to complete the mission before you run out of battery.  How high will the AC be flying is important.  Since 25MPH @ 250 feet seems a lot slower than 15MPH at 50 Feet.      These are the considerations that I use.   Since almost all of the flying and filming I do is relativly local.  I get to experiment with a mission, Review the footage.  Go back on Mission hub, make adjustments and re-run the mission.

Really, the only way to know is to try it out.  There are so many variables involved.  On the up side, it costs nothing but time to experiment.

Glad I could help. If I get out at the weekend I'm going to try some very slow tests, 0.5 - 5kmh

does the gimbal speed depend on the speed of the drone? Like if your panning left to right will it turn slower depending on the speed.Also what is the cruise speed for the Mavic ?

Shouldn't change the gimbal speed, pan / yaw is the same at any speed. Not sure about the Mavic, probably about 30kmh before the props come into shot?
