    Well, got my brand new P3 advanced. First flight - wonderful aircraft!! Smooth, way better than my P2 vision! Took what should have been fabulous shots at around 150' of a large lake by me. When I tried to view on PC --- BLACK with a small spot of light????????? What is going on, did I do something wrong?? I just went straight up to altitude and hovered, slowly turned 360' I could see what the aircraft saw? Any input?

    Possibly you have shot a very underexposed video?
    See the blue EV 0 at the top here ...
    If you have set the exposure too low with the thumbwheel, it will say something like EV -2.0

    Guess I need to read more about the controller! What you're talking about is the right turn wheel? I was messing about with that thanks I will try again tomorrow after work, will let you all know

    If you're just learning, I would set the exposure to "Auto". It sounds like you have the exposure lock and it's causing underexposed video like Meta4 said.
