#48

Looks like you had some fun well done


#49

I think Socialite in this usage is relative;) Tx for the badge anyway, its good to have the validation (ironic emoji with a wink)…

Here is a little video of the meet. Pardon my editing and filming skills, still learning

Glad to see I’m not the only one who carries a small sheet of polythene in the rucksack for placing on wet or dirty ground :blush:

Hi Mark looks like you had a good time couple of things I noticed and hope you don’t mind me mentioning them.
I’m not sure if the spark does this but try and set your controls to a slower yaw so the camera doesn’t move so quickly or use tripod mode. The bit where your trying to follow the Barge was a little bit to jerky but still looked good would have been better smother with the settings I have mentioned
These are only my thoughts and we all have to start somewhere
you want to see my early stuff very cringe worthy

What did you use to edit with I’m always interested in what people have in case there is something better out there


#54

Thanks for the tips, I need to think a bit more about the shot i’m taking as I tend to rush it. I forgot about tripod mode, definitely give that a try next time. I was more worried about flying the distance I was at, as it was right at the limit of my sight, visible but still the longest way out i’d been, The editing software was Filmora.


#55

Thanks for the reply Mark
I know the feeling when you get your bird up all your best laid plans go out the window and you just want to see your baby fly and return in one piece…hopefully :grinning:
