I'm an experienced aerial videographer, but taking this course has revealed a way to take my skills to another level. This course assumes you can already fly and have the basics covered. It focused on specific shots you can get using the Litchi app. The lessons cover the step by step detail of how to execute the shot. It's so amazing that you can automate flights before getting out in the field. It's a new way of flying and and filming and this course is a great resource for how to do it.
