I've had the Mavic for 3 weeks now, and the weather has been pretty darn good in S. Central Florida. Most days I'm looking at 80 degrees for the high, and winds of 5 to 10 MPH. That has given me a chance to get quite a bit of practice in, and I have made some flights over Lake Okeechobee, the Okeechobee-Fort Myers canal near Moore Haven, Fisheating Creek Bird Sanctuary (OK to fly the drone as long as it's not used for hunting) and other places in the area.

Still learning lots about this bird & the special skills for aerial videography. Received a phone and tablet sun shade from PolarPro. Modified the Phantom tablet sun shade to fit the Samsung Tab E and the tablet mount I got on Etsy. I've found that when the bird is flying within 45 degrees of a low sun, it is very difficult to see the screen on either the Tab E or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Sport even with the shade. I've cranked the output on the tablet/phone all the way up, and in the DJI Go 4 app. Even with the sun shade it's hard to see shadowy areas without boosting the exposure way up. Looks like if I'm flying towards the sun I'll need to position myself first, then change the exposure where it needs to be and make sure I'm not close to obstacles. Anyone else have this problem? I'm usually shooting about 100 ISO with a shutter speed of 50, and my exposure is nicely spread. Looks good on replay.

Here's my second video from the Mavic:
