Hi John,Except for the compass calibration, did you fly it "Out of the box" w/o any firmware uptates? I have a P3A and just bought the Q500 4K. Gettin ready to take it on it's maiden voyage.
Welcome to the Yuneec family. Yes, I followed all the safety checks. Updated to the new firmware. I calibrate at every new spot. Also do a 20 sec hover before flying. One thing I don't like is the prop wash hop on landing. If the aircraft is drifting don't land until stable. Could tip over and bust a prop.
As a 'true newbie' to this cool flying camera, I've been trying a few different editing programs. The stuff that comes on our Windows CPU's works OK...
I use X8 Pro also and it does use a lot of "power", I do a lot of photography and videography and had a custom PC built 3 i5 processers and 16 GB ram and so far it hasn't flinched...that was 5 years ago knock on wood..lolI ended up getting the Corel VideoStudio X8 Pro. Seams to work but my computer is chugging. Time to upgrade.
I use Adobe Premiere for most of my editing needs. I use Adobe After Effects for graphics, animation, slow-mo and stabilization.
