    I have seen that many of the Phantom 3 videos have the props in sight while going forward.

    I see that some people crop the video to remove the props, while others have videos where the props are not a problem.

    I do not want to crop my videos, and I do not want to see the props.

    Is it possible to angle the camera down by 5 degrees (approx) to remove the props from view?

    I am guessing that this is how the pilots are getting clean forward videos with camera facing forward without cropping.

    Could somebody with experience provide me with some guidance?

    Thanks.

    Yes the P3 can rotate the camera down 90 degrees. This can be done while in flight from the controller. If it's turned on in the software you can also rotate up 5 degrees or so. All controlled by a wheel on the RC.. If you move forward slowly you wont see the props unless you are flying into a headwind which causes the forward tilt, thus props in the frame.

    This is why I shoot in 4K and deliver 1080. I can crop out the props with no loss in resolution. Another option is to fly backwards.
