    Hi guys wondered if you can help with this,
    Had my drone a week now took it to my golf course tonight 6pm and flew up the 5th hole tough little par 3 ;)

    As you can see there are lines across the video, this only happens when I fly with the sun in front. I wondered if anyone else has seen this and is there some setting that can stop it.

    over exposed, they are called Zebra -- you can turn them off in the app or dial them out with the controller exposure knob
    If you want to know more-- Do a search on the forum. they have been discussed several times

    Don't see it, but it sounds like you have the Over-Exposure setting enabled.......IOS device right? somewhere in camera settings you should be able to disable the over-exposure warning. Good Luck

    Sound more likely shadows from the prop as he's fly into the sun. Zebra pattern will never be seen on video footage but on your monitor indicating overexposure.

    Some use ND filters or a sun hood to block out the unwanted noise (prop shadow)..

    It shades the lens.

    Prop shadows can occur when flying into the sun, and the shadows fall on the lens that isn't otherwise shaded.

    You can reduce the effect by flying at a different time of day (when the sun is not above your props casting a shadow on the lens), not flying into the sun (fly backwards later reversing the footage might change the attack angle of your props enough to avoiding the shadow falling on the lens, use a ND filter, which will slow down your shutter speed, resulting in a less noticeable shadow, use a lens hood to shade your lens, or perhaps raise your elevation and drop the angle of the camera, and/or fly slower so the props are not leaning hard over the camera.
