    ok my camera has been working well ookk pictures seem pretty fuzzy
    however today I tried to use s and m size to see if it made a difference
    now im back on L size and Im getting purple diamonds in the corners
    I tried to restart it and its still there any ideas :(

    Or is this a get in line for a replacement thing
    This is a resize to fit here but also would like to know if this seems on par with what you are seeing minus the ufos

    Defective camera sensor. Get your unit replaced. This exact camera flaw - the PURPLE HANG GLIDER OF DEATH in the upper-left corner - has happened to several people on these forums.

    You don't see it in Small or Medium modes, because those modes *don't* actually change the picture size. They just crop the picture vertically - thus excluding the section of the sensor with the purple flaw.

    emailed drone fly today said the would take care of it
    Sent me out a new camera with tracking number by 2pm
    had to give them cedit card number until I return the other one in the box they send

    A + on the service will do more business in the future

    Good thing you're getting a new camera. It looks like your lens wasn't focused right, either.

    I popped open my camera and refocused my lens. Initial ground photos look promising. I'm waiting for the weather to clear for some 200ft AGL tests.
