    Has anyone else noticed a bunch of horizontal lines in their video appear as soon as you aim the camera anywhere near the sunlight can hit the lens?
    I don't think this is normal and do not experience this with a regular camcorder.

    I'm wondering if I have a defective unit...

    Nop. It's normal if you're aiming directly for the sun .
    You notice less lines if you change settings to 60fps, or you can use an ND filter to slow down the shutter speed of the camera.

    thanks for the info folks - saves me on returning the drone as defective (wouldn't want to live without it now)
