I think you are getting a bit confused with shutter speed and aperture. If you open the lens from f5.6 to f4 you need to shorten the exposure time say from 1/250s to 1/500 to achieve the same exposure. So by opening the lens you would ended up shooting with shorter shutter speed. No need to worry about image not being sharp due to long exposure time

Beautiful photo! May I ask why you regret that you did not use ND filter? ND filters have no purpose when taking stills with drones. They are only used for keeping the shutter speed down in video to follow the fps/shutter speed rule. Perhaps you meant to say Pola filter?

Why not use shorter shutter speed and open the lens to f4 then?? Were you already on the shortest shutter speed the camera can do?

I guess I certainly could've stopped down the shutter and opened up the aperture, but then I run the risk of losing sharpness if the drone moved while snapping the pic.

To my original feeling after seeing the pic from the drone, I felt that by simply dropping a mild ND filter on, I would've been able to leave the shutter speed where I was comfortable and open the aperture a stop or two.

Oh, and the M2P's shutter goes can do 1/8000th of a sec at its max.
