    Anyone have an odd wave of video noise in your videos? Kind of a faint scrolling thick lines. It comes and goes.

    Study it long and hard and the conditions in which it happens. Then maybe you can figure it out. haha lol jk.

    It is from the sun shining thru your props casting shadows on the camera sensor. It is not radio noise thankfully.

    Thank you. Looks like that might be it. Sun very bright and at angle I was testing an area on.
    Good 9 satellite location today. Doing some camera test shots.

    Is there a filter you prefer for very bright sunny days on the V2+ ?



    (will post video sample. moment...)

    If its what I suspect, it is the shadows of the props, and it all depends on angle. Looks like bands traveling up or down the screen. If you tilt the camera down slightly, or alter your angle to the sun, they will go away.

    It's not radio noise. It's the sunlight flickering through the blades. You will only see it at certain times of day and only when flying towards the sun. Take a look at the Petal or the thread on the 8g nd filter.

    There's pro's and con's on every solution.
