    Cool. If you do try it, let us know how it works out.

    Camera Settings P4

    Since the OP is NOT creating a production or an photograph, only searching in the enviroment for a rocket and/or chute, if he exposes for the shadowed area he is interested in , he can can let the highlights blow out

    Camera Settings P4

    Sure. I mistook that you were shooting video , then scanning frames, which might make sense. I assume these are rockets that tracked off into a treed area. Are the chutes a specific color? You could do a color pass filter and boost that color so that any other color would be black and white...

    Camera Settings P4

    I would use ISO100 and no ND filter. Expose for the shadows your looking for details in. This should give you high enough shutter speed to reduce blur to mostly nothing during daylight hours, assuming a somewhat slow speed of flight. either 24 or 30 fps. Cinelike is good if you intend to post...

    P3 pro. In storage 2 years

    Not being a smarty pants here but if you have not flown in a couple of years, are you using the double press to power on? Someone I know had done exactly that and had forgotten the startup procedure.

    Can you guys confirm which drone this may be?

    almost looks like a hot air balloon basket with anti collision lights which hang below. adding that that lights seem to be a short distance from the "body" object and they are illuminating mostly the bottom

    Black bars at top and bottom of video

    Ok, strange. You said " I've tried all combinations of 4K, and UHD each with 4:3, 16:9, 3:2, and yet the bars remain, always. Not sure I understand how aspect ratio affects the video, but I'm not an expert, so... " The native video you shoot at 4096 x2160 isn't 16:9 but the 3840 x 2160 is...

    Black bars at top and bottom of video

    I was responding for the youtube video question by the OP. I think he is mixing resolutions , possibly on a 4096 x 2160 project. So Ruckert, where are you seeing the black bars? and you say " but the top bar remained " are you only seeing a top bar and not a bottom bar?

    Black bars at top and bottom of video

    Are you uploading video to youtube as 3840 x 2160 mp4 ? And that is where you see bars?

    Black bars at top and bottom of video

    as grone said, it is likely the resolution setting. do you shoot 4k? so there may be different frame sizes, 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160 . The top one was likely 4096 x2160. The bottom one at 3840. Youtube likes 3840, so it works as is. If you upload the 4096 they proportionly narrow it to 3840...

    Just to add , some software seems able to read damaged files and some can't The video it self is likely not damaged but the file tables maybe. I have used AoA MP4 patch to repair reverse written info.

    NEED DESPERATE HELP!!

    Is it possible the AC was powered down before recording was stopped? That can damage the files. If so ,put the card back in the AC , power up the AC , wait a minute ,shutdown the AC and retry the card.

    Has anyone written the Basic or Advanced Drone License Exam???

    Ah , no problem, just making sure I hadn't missed something. Seems no aircraft are useable for flights over people so if your flying a P4P an advanced certificate should give some a lot more use.

    Has anyone written the Basic or Advanced Drone License Exam???

    Where does TC state the P4P isn't useable for advanced ops? It shows it is compliant for for ops near people and ops in controlled airspace . https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/aviation/drone-safety/choosing-right-drone.html
