    I flew with 1080 @ 30Hz and average metering and the video sucked bad, white dots everywhere looking up or down

    Fixed for my all stock version 3 Phantom:

    1080 @ 60, metering set to point (very important as you dont get the wash from red LEDs), ISO and WB set to auto

    Here is my night flight and corresponding day flight at about same distance, altitude, and camera panning

    The nighttime was good that it did have all the artifacts. But the daytime was bad. 1080p and 30fps would have to look better. Other then that...thanks for sharing. It was good seeing the appellation(sp?) mountains.

    Hmm I'll have to try that. I did some night video the other evening and it was pretty grainy at 1080p30 with everything else default. With my Ghost HD I know that lowering the frame rate at night helped, might try that here as well.
