Hey Pilots!
As many of us know, EXP settings for our aircraft can make or break what we get from our videos.
The features we get with our Mavics are amazing to say the least.

What are your favorite settings for your EXP with in the Go 4 app for your smoothest video shots?
If possible, please post a link to a video you have made using those settings.

There are many YT videos out there that explain the best cinematic settings including aircraft EXP and gimbal pitch settings, Tripod mode, Etc, however I want to see yours.

Please feel free to share what you have. I am curious to see what works best for you and what others think.
I may start a poll on this subject in a future thread.

Example image of EXP in the app.
Adjusting the yaw to .15 or .20 seems to work best for most, but also depends on actual camera settings as well.

Mine are set to .25, .20.25.

If we alter these settings from the factory default, do they affect Cinematic mode, or does Cinematic mode ignore the EXP settings while in Cinematic mode?

Hey all,

Edit: M2P, latest firmware and DJI Go 4 versions

Resurrecting this thread, because either I'm doing something wrong or EXP has changed.

Here's the issue:
  • The above info (and other sources) say these EXP settings should default to 0.40, 0.40, 0.40.
  • But when I go to the EXP settings, I get the defaults of 0.25, 0.20, 0.25.
  • I can go back one page to Advanced Settings and hit Reset Gain & Expo Tuning and get the same thing (verified after changing the EXP settings and hitting Reset)
  • The controller is in P mode, not Tripod
  • I am in Normal mode, as seen when I press the Intelligence Flight (controller) Icon on the left side (just above APAS)
  • APAS is off
I have tried setting Rudder / Rotate to it's lowest setting of 0.10. It does not seem as slow / smooth as
the few videos I've seen (such as the above) from a low EXP Rudder settings of 0.15 and 0.20 (from a default of 0.40).

When I put it in Tripod mode (the EXP Rudder setting stays at 0.10), the yaw slows down a bit. Putting it back into P mode and it speeds up a bit.

Am I missing a setting that's causing these values to be so low as a default? Or has a subsequent firmware update changed the behavior of these?
