    Hi guys, had my p3a for a month or so and had it out yesterday and noticed for the first time the rotors getting in shot when I was accelerating. Wasn't very windy and was quite annoying...have I accidentally changed something? TIA Thom

    Angle the camera down slightly and that will fix the problem.

    When you fly faster or get into a head wind the Phantom tilts more with the rear rotors pushing more to compensate. With the tilt you get the rotors in the picture. The fix is to tilt the camera down a little or fly slower and have good conditions with low wind.

    Depending on your desired outcome, consider filming with AC in reverse. Right stick down. Keeps a clearer field, but does change the image.
