The tilt reveal was also a nice effect and as you practice more of those reveals, they will become very smooth. If you have upbeat/fast audio for background music then a harder cut transition would work better than cross dissolve. I p
  2. Hi @DataInspector, There are no penalties for letting your Part 107 Certification lapse. The Part 107 does not expire, it must be renewed however if you plan to operate your drone for non-recreational applications. Letting the certification lapse will not prompt you to retake the initial Part 107 exam again. If your certification is not renewed, then you can only operate for recreation until it has been renewed. If you are not using your certification that often, you could let it lapse and then renew once the FAA launches the free online training sometime in March. The other

  8. Hi @Cullen, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Sounds like you have some great equipment to start out with. The Phantom 4 is a great drone for mapping and from what I have heard, it is a go to drone for mappers due to the mechanical shutter. Best of luck out there and feel free to let us know if you have any questions! Best, Chase

  11. Hi @twinjet, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! There are so many possibilities with drones and what they can do. I really enjoy aerial photography, I find the process and overall final product more interesting than ground photography. Not only is flying the drone fun, but it's also showing people a new perspective of something. How do you like your Tello drone? I have heard they are a great drones for the features, and price. - Chase

  13. Hi @prisoner307, Thank you for sharing this video with us! I really enjoyed the shot with path through the trees and the wind turbines spinning off in the distance. The color correction was also very well done. - Chase
  14. Hi @Dmjohnston, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! To help get you started, I recommend reviewing the drone laws in the U.S. In order to operate your drone commercially, you will need to have an FAA Part 107 certification.

  21. Hi @Ras Marcus, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! These are really cool, your 1st and third image have a great angle with sun reflection aligning with the pier. When I am taking sunrise or sunset pictures, I like to use the PolarPro ND4 filter. With the smoke in the sky, there is going to be more noise if you try increasing the exposure of the sky. I would use a mask to edit the sky as a separate layer and increase the highlights, this make the sun brighter and add more light to the sky. Just be sure not to increase the highlights too much where it washes out the sun. To dea
