    Flew for the first time with my P3P and had a great time. Took lots of vids in 4K. I found during playback that the propellers were in a lot of the shots. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You'll always get this when you fly fairly fast....the easiest solution is to point the camera slightly downwards.

    A quadcopter doesn't flt level.
    It moves forward flies by tilting. To go faster, it tilts more.
    If your camera is looking straight forward you will see the props if the Phantom is tilted.
    The solution is to fly slower or tilt your camera down a little.

    I seem to reacall reading that using ND filters and thereby slowing the shutter speed down, eliminates the props from showing in the video

    The may eliminate some of the shadow effect, they won't eliminate the actual props themselves.
