    Looks like Prop shadows to me. Sun reflections.

    You can resolve that issue by using ND filters or a lens hood. Shooting video with the sun behind your Phantom will help eliminate the problem too.

    Thats also what i was thinking, but wasn't sure!!

    I guess the only way to avoid it is not flying in the direction of the sun?

    For example -- the Neewer lens hood.
