    Recently, I have experienced seeing rolling horizontal bands appearing on my Phantom 2/Go Pro 3 video when turning or when moving in the direction of the sun. I contacted GoPro and sent them video clips but they claim never to have seen this. Video footage facing away from the light source still looks good. This started after I installed the FPC system and prop guards. The bands are nearly transparent but they are noticeable and mess up my video images. Anyone know what this is and what can be done?

    It is the sunlight coming through the props and not a fault. Be aware of it and film accordingly.

    Agreed,

    I've seen these (link below) for the P2V+, don't know if they have them for the gopro 3, 3+, or 4. May be too much for the gimbal though.
