Multirotor 1st Video - Tornado Aftermath

Here is the link to my first ever inspire video clip.

The vid is straight from the sd card, (no post or cutting), I wanted potential clients to see the capabilities of the I1. It was windy solid 20-22mph and I was flying alone. I recruited a couple of spotters, and had a monocular if needed anticipating the dreaded compass errors/gps drop out -
I had to drag the clip thru windows movie maker (to get a watermark on it) which killed the quality after an upload to Vimeo, (I have the OE clip in 4k though -

I was nervous, but sucked it up and went for it anyways, (I would have died losing the bird on the 1st flight, who wouldn't) -
There was only one day I could get this exact footage, and I went for it -
(you can see me hovering over launch field, looking around, then decided to go.


The main thing I learned was panning (by yawing the I1) was not good,
(I have since learned how to use the bottom buttons to switch between pan & tilt).

The quality of my skills on this 1st try are so-so (at best), but the subject matter is outstanding. Camera was FPV so I could see where I was going, I did not know about follow me (or the other modes) and had zero time to test them)

This is only 15 minutes from my house so I'm going to film a documentary (also recording the rebuilding of the small town). I will get footage every week for the next 8 months or so. I will fly out to certain spots, then press Return Home, and film on the way back, (since we still do not have ground station for I1) so I can reproduce, over and over, the same flight path.


Make sure to use the pause button every so often, (to have a good look around) -
Any help with camera settings and modes for the I1 will be Greatly appreciated -

My Movie (7 min 28 sec)

No lookers cuz it says,
"Sorry, because of its privacy settings, this video cannot be played here."

Fix that and others may have more to say.

(Bet it doesn't show you that message, huh?)

It's not truthful: didn't watch the vid.
So, somethings amiss with the way it is reporting data to you.

Oh well. I'll click on the link and go look, this time.

The video comes up just fine on Vimeo when you click on it. It was a pretty small town to begin with, about the size where everyone knows everyone else. The tornado took out more than half the town. Your coverage provided a perception one does not usually get on the 6:00 News.

Just a thought but if you lightened the watermark, made it just a little smaller and put it near a corner it would not be as much of a distraction and open up the central viewing area..

Sorry for that.
Someone suggested I do that in the middle so someone doesn't steal my video.
I wouldn't want that to happen.

people don't even take a look at your video, let alone stealing it.

No - I was serious. It was smart of you to put it there.

Disaster footage is pretty rare.

Thx, it was the first day they let the residents back in.
There were people everywhere, in every pile of rubble.
It was sad to see the destruction from such a perspective.
I looked at 4 flights at 4 times the resolution you are seeing on vimeo and on a 4k screen. Not one person of all them people noticed the I1.
I looked for hours, not one.

I added the embed link so you don't have to wear out your mouse clicking twice instead of once.
