    Has anyone seen this red circular haze in the upper left hand corner of any of their photos? It seems to be present on all of my photos taken @ night. I have intentionally blown out the temperature in the photo to emphasize the red circular haze in the upper left hand corner. Any feedback would be much appreciated, Thanks.

    Looks like you need to turn off the arm LEDs when shooting your photos.

    Reflections from the LED's on the copter arms... Irritating right?! Try using a ND (neutral density) filter, it'll slow up your shutter speeds but MAY help, I'm not positive.

    Yes, turning off the arm lights in the app will fix it!

    For pics at night, yes turning off the LED in the front arms is mandatory or if you want some disco effect...
    ND filter at night will not really help and it is a picture, not a video, so the shutter speed is handled a different way.
    Maybe also need to clean the camera lens. If you use ND filter during the day, you can also check the inside part of the UV filter (transparent).
