    Anyone else having the issue off getting their props in the shot on videos and stills. This especially happens when shooting video and flying forward, which I guess makes sense but it seem pretty significant most of the time. Of course I have the camera completely level, not tilted down at all.

    Any suggestions?

    I often shoot flying BACKWARD at a high rate of speed, then reverse the video to get an approach shot at the same level.

    you need to control your speed and fly slower or tilt the camera down.

    You can point pretty much all the way up if you fly slow, otherwise tilt down a little. Flying backwards can look cool too even without reversing the clip.

    One thing you can do - other than drive slower or backwards - is add a crop effect afterwards, i.e. letterbox effect.
    Suits some things more than others - but with a wide landscape and the wide lens can look quite good and cinematic.

    I record in 1440 with H3B. Then crop. No props. 1080 and 1080 super view will show props every time

    Agree with you mate, I like it as it shows where the footage is coming from gives it a sort of dynamic and quirky feel.

    Its in with me !

    I feel like that with shadows. I like to keep them in. Gives it a sense of perspective.
    I tend to fly sideways at speed and not got any props in my shots yet :)

    Try video in 1080p Narrow FOV. This is the ONLY WAY TO GET THE NARROW FOV, and the best way to avoid props in the video, especially if it is windy.
