    Hello Phantom Pilots,

    I have just bought my first P2 and had it up on a test flight to check the systems. The bird flies well and was quite stable in moderate windy conditions, but I have noticed an aberration in the video picture that I need help identifying and possible solutions.

    I posted on YT and Vimeo a sample of the first flight footage. There seems to be a dark roll bar most noticeable at around the 35 - 37 second mark of the footage. I color corrected the footage to increase the contrast so the interference is more noticeable. The roll bar/interference is there for most of the video but most obvious when the camera (HERO3) is facing forward.

    Any clues to the problem and potential fixes would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Eric Halberstadt

    Shadows of the props are falling on the camera lens. You can tell from the shadow you cast at 0:28 that the sun is high and the Phantom is facing the sun.

    Yep, that's exactly what it is.
