    Not the ideal conditions to film due to the very harsh light, but I had to try a first flight in the woods with the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. It was a learning experience ! GPS was very weak and took a few minutes for the drone to acquire signal. Then, when flying, I kept losing GPS signal, so had to fly manual most of the time. I think due to the trees and the fact that this was shot in a valley didn't help getting good signal.

    It was also a learning experience in terms of understanding the difficulty of shooting video in such harsh light conditions. I had to drop a bunch of cool shots I had due to either overexposure or underexposure. Next time will be better !
