    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have any tips on how to avoid seeing the propellers in view on the GoPro? Especially when flying forward it seems to be almost impossible to avoid them when flying at high speeds.

    Thanks,
    Serge

    it just comes with the territory.

    tilt the camera down
    shoot in Medium (not wide) mode
    crop it in post editing
    don't push the stick forward too far when flying forward
    get longer landing gear and mount your gimbal lower down??

    Depending on what GoPro you have...does it have WiFi?

    I turn on the WiFi, use the app on my Droid to do preview mode (you can see on your screen exactly what the camera is seeing). Adjust the angle, tighten it down, then...

    TURN OFF THE WIFI.

    Very important last step. :)

    I got the Hero 3+ so it does have the Wifi. I just ordered some FPV equipment though. I'm sure that will help. It's arriving today. Can't wait to take it out for a spin :)
