    Luqus,

    There will be more knowledgeable folk on the way shortly,I am sure, who will know if this can be explained, however search for some of the recent posts on the Dji go iOS app (if that is what you are using) 2.8.1 update which came out a couple of days ago.

    People, including myself, are reporting video problems, and your screenshots look like some of the ropey video I had a couple of days ago.

    I'm not a fan of Apple products, and would much rather use a Samsung tab, but my work is apple friendly...There are some other threads, where users list their pros/cons to certain devices

    I have great luck with my Galaxy S5 phone, it is just too small to be useful. I imagine that any Galaxy tab with some *** behind it would do perfectly

    Two week owner of PH 4. Same green, pink purple ropy "noise" issue. Using Samsung Tab S 10.5 (18 months old). Some jerkiness associated with the stripes etc, which also show up in videos/photos. I wonder about settings of camera (ISO, Shutter etc) to help, but thats above my current pay grade.
    Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bob

    Go to HD and drop it down to 4k.

    First off, save your flight data to teh cloud and delete you DJI Go app and re-install it. If you are using the 2.8.2 firmware on your iOS device there have been a ton of problems with it.
    It seems a re-install is fixing the issues. You can tell if you have the "bad" 2.8.2 by going to your video options and seeing if you have the 2.7k recording option.
    If you dont, you have th ebad 2.8.2 firmware.
    re-install the Go app and see if you get the 2.7k video option.
    If you dont, you are best to find the "revert back to 2.8.1 firmware" thread in the P4 Help forum and follow those instructions.

    If you DO have the 2.7k video option then try this:

    You need to change a few settings on what info the copter feeds to your TX and device. Most importantly the feeds bandwidth. I use 6MB (8MB is default) if you are still having dropouts drop it to 4mb.
    and also the Hardware decoding option. (so its Green) This makes it easier and less cumbersome for your iPad to translate the info.

    I had the same problem with mine. I use an iPad Mini 4 and this solved all my issues of poor feed quality.

    Not using iOS, using a Samsung TabS 10.5.
    I do have the 2.7 (2704x1520)? But with using the Samsung, is that still an issue?

    Will feeds need to be changed for the Samsung?
    No idea where to even start that process. Aged but not computer wise yet.

    Does speed of SD card have anything to do with it?

    Thank you!

    My reply was for the original poster...

    However, the same applies to your Android device for the data feed settings etc in your Go app...
