    Anybody have a problem with part of the left strut appearing in the bottom left corner of still shots taken by Phantom 2 Vision +. I don't recall it was a problem when I got the unit but have had a couple of hard landings and started noticing the strut in the still shots. I can crop it out with adobe but it's just irritating. It doesn't appear in the videos, just camera shots.
    I re calibrated the transmitter and phantom today but it didn't help. Nothing looks broken or bent on the craft. Thanks

    Sounds like your gimbal needs to be adjusted. I assume you've done the simple stuff like double-check the rubber grommets to make sure they're not loose? Double-check the motor mounts, too. Those hard landings certainly could've caused something to come loose.

    Then, once you've checked all the obvious, use Assistant to true up the yaw of your gimbal.
