    I steer my phantom with yaw adjustments mostly, but was thinking maybe I should try steering with tilt, or a combination of these .........any input on this....what's smoother for video?

    It all depends on the shot your trying for, ( example: if hovering and viewing large crowd, yaw might be best for a 360 degree view of crowd )
    Where roll ( left right ) might be better for following moving target, or maneuvering around a tree or object
    Where as ( both ( yaw / roll )) together might be best for beautiful flowing landscape or terrain, like free flying through the terrain.

    I use both MOST of the time when flying around, when hovering I use yaw and/or roll as well as pitch ( forward / reverse ).

    It is more about ( you ) and your style of videography! Or the shot you are looking for!

    ( but typically when having fun and just flying around, both together is best ( for me )!

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, Fly safe!
