    Hi,

    I am a newbie and have been trying to figure the following out:

    In right turns I frequently get the left landing gear in the picture with a GoPro Hero 3+ 1080p wide. I have been trying to tweak all the Gimbal settings with no substantial improvement. Is there anyone here who had the same issue and who figured out a good way to solve this issue? Any hints are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks much,
    Daniel

    yeah with 1080P wide you will catch the landing gear - most of us have experienced that. Aside from going to the wide leg landing gear the only real solution I have found is switching to Normal width. Honestly, I have found normal width better in general because I hate the fisheye look of wide anyway.

    A bit more expensive solution is a 5.4mm flat field lens. Narrower FOV, 10 Mega pixel sensor area and no fisheye. About £78 GBP incl DHL from aliexpress.com. easy to change on a hero 3+ black. I've done 2 now.

    Agreed. I use 1080/30/Medium and the picture is a lot more natural-looking, plus you avoid getting props/landing gear in the frame unless you make really extreme manoeuvres.

    As above, 1080/30/medium. And latest firmware. With the latest firmware the gimbal will react on stick input (yaw) This helps getting rid of landing gear in the picture.

    I assume that you're referring to 3.06 for the Phantom and not a firmware for the GoPro.

    I scouted around on the website you mentioned but I can't seem to find the 5.4mm flat field lens. The link below takes you to aliepress.com & to the GoPro products.

    The link has changed i think, just search for 5.4mm lens and got this from my phone... http://m.aliexpress.com/item/1893557155 ... sitedetail
    Its worth noting that this will only fit the Hero 3 Plus Black Edition not the Hero 3.

    I use 1080/30 Narrow and when I fly "normal" I never have any issues with props or landinggear. I have seen the landinggear and the props one time each but then I was playing around and made fast turns at high speed and realy pushing the Phantom.

    Awesome, thank you all for your advice. Will experiment with the non-wide setting and consider mods to the landing gear and lens as well.
