    Is there a way to fix a scratched on the lens? How much would it cost to replace the lends itself? Thanks guys

    The lens is not removable and/or replaceable. Other than buying a new camera, you might be able to send it in to DJI and get it repaired. Give them a call and see what they say.

    A piece of very fine sand paper should do the job

    I wouldnt recommend using sandpaper that will just make the problem worse. Even the finest sandpaper would alter the lens shape and remove the lens coating, making the lens useless.

    Does the scratch actually show up on the footage? ..... it's the back of the lens that is critical....which thankfully you cannot scratch.
