    Hey Guys, has anyone found a good lens hood for the P3P .. Got one from ebay it comes too close to the ground with the gimbal starts up and I feel its a bit too heavy.. Anyone find a nice one out there? Thanks!

    200 flights here and have yet to need a lease hood. Are you having glare issues. ?

    I made one out of a plastic cap from some perfume, weight was only a gram or two.

    Perfect for reducing any strobing of sun through the blades.

    No glare I just figured it would be better when u are filming in the sun! When I shoot into the sun now the video gets a bit dark I'm sure that's normal and a hood wouldn't do too much at that point ..
