First off BigErnie - welcome to you and your son to Phantom Pilots Forum - this is pretty well your last stop to finding solutions to any issues you have or just like you did - ask any old question.My son and I got a phantom 3 pro for Christmas
Welcome aboard "astarofaz" to Phantom Pilots Forum - this is pretty well your last stop to finding solutions to any issues you have.If you are rotating to the left, then just go for it at a nice even pace.
Happy to be here! I am excited for the community, there seems to be a lot of expertise here. I am sure that I will learn lots and hopefully be able to share my own knowledge as well!Welcome aboard "astarofaz" to Phantom Pilots Forum - this is pretty well your last stop to finding solutions to any issues you have.
I agree with your comment on the video - a little tough on the eyes when the rotation is too quick - good comment.
Hey BigErnie (and whoever else may read this) can I ask for the same favor? Any constructive criticism is welcomed
Great ideas for getting familiar with filming - very good in fact as IMO the photography side of the Phantom seems tougher to grasp than flying it.Nice stuff guys! It takes practice to get nice fluid shots. I'll go out in the field across the street from my house and use a whole battery doing orbital flights trying to keep myself in the center of the shot, maintaining the same distance, etc...
I sat out the other day and just let my P4 hover about 80 feet up for a shot including my house and the sky and just played with camera settings taking stills and short clips.
For composition I'll choose a subject and think about ways to film it. I'm working on a list of shots I'd like to try and get over the next couple of months. I've got a list of locations (all very local), subjects and ideas of how I want to capture them so I can go in with an idea of what I want and use my time and battery power most efficiently.
I'm by no means anything approaching professional and there are people here that can give you much more detail and information, or at least point you toward a valuable resource. For myself, I am focused more on smooth movement, composition and attaining the full potential image quality out of my equipment than any type of style of shot; what looks interesting to me may bore the heck out of you.
Absolutely! I currently use a mini 3 wifi only. I just hook up at home and cache maps for the area that I plan on flying then when I get into the field use that map for all my operations. Just do some checking that you are getting one with enough processor to run the apps (check put he lost of devices DJI recommends)HAVE A QUESTION. CAN YOU USE A I-PAD NOT CONNECTED WITH ANY CARRIER LIKE ATT OR VERIZON ON A PHANTOM 3 ADVANCE/ BUY ONE ON E-BAY AND NOT SIGN UP WITH ANYBODY. AND IF SO WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST TO USE
