Luv your videos man...besides the video footage, you bring out the fun of flying a drone.
Thank you, that is a huge compliment and I appreciate it very much! Safe flying!

I have the M2P but you certainly make a great sell for the Zoom Nick. Excellent footage and really well composed and edited. Please keep posting stuff like this!

I noticed the position of your cpl filter was at about 45 degrees to horizontal. I have used parallel to horizontal to film through the surface of clear water, but I would appreciate your views on best positions for the cpl filters

Are you talking about the Polar Pro ND filters?

It looked like you have a circular polarizing filter on your camera, probably with an ND rating, that can c be set at different angles to the horizontal plane of the camera frame using a marker on the filter rim band. I have not used any position except parallel to the horizontal and I see yours is set at 45 degrees. I was wondering if you get better haze filtering at that setting than at the horizontal. Thanks for your time. I'm still learning about polarizers.

It was a 32, I'm not a big fan of the polar pros they don't screw on very well. I also don't like that it has no markings for adjusting the outer ring so its always a poop shoot. You can adjust the darkness but the only way I have found is by looking at the camera while I twist it. Not quite sure if that's what you are referring to, but I typically just throw the polar pro on and make my adjustments within the camera settings.

I will start using the camera to adjust the polarizer as you suggest. I was afraid to touch the camera while the gimbals are active. To add to the other "pro" zoom discussion; I got the zoom to be able to stay farther away from the fish I needed to count as I was thinking they would spook at the drone and be harder to count. so from a filming point of view you can be further from sensitive animals. Thanks again

I agree that's why I love the Zoom so much. I just grab the camera with one hand to steady it and use my other hand to twist it off. But like I mentioned, the polar pros don't fit very well, it's the wrong threading or something.
