    Sorry I cant post the video my internet is too bad.

    I was flying the other day - great flight in the countryside. Was sunny with some cloud. When I looked at the video there was some strange interference. I thought at first ti was maybe some small powerlines but never noticed it before up here.
    On the return flight it was fine. I think maybe it was caused by the angle of the sun through the blades. when I pause the video to take a screen grab it goes away so can't even post some still images.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    horizontal striped sky is common. caused by the shadow of the rotors across the lens.
    Easy fix .. Don't fly into the sun.

    Lol I guessed it was.
    You don't realise sunshine is a very rare thing in Wales!!!
    I noticed something else today - sunny again - the Phantom was throwing a bright spot onto the ground like a mini searchlight reflecting the sun - looked awesome!
