    I'm shooting on GoPro 3 Black at 1080 50fps, but when ever the phantom is facing the sun, I get light flicker from the sun.
    Does anyone know if I change FPS or quality, if you can avoid that? Or is it just unavoidable. Just film away from the sun?

    Thanks

    Ahh great idea. Although the link you gave me was all for the vision. I wonder if there is a subject on the GoPro
