    Today I flew three flights in evening and found the issue in quality of the camera.
    When the craft flight in good light its giving fine results having shiny lights.

    When i flew at low alt one side setting sun and clouded by trees obstructing light the quality went real bad.

    See here two cropped time clips.
    Check at 1080p still compression after upload in YouTube but actual footage looks **** noisy.

    I don't think those examples are all that bad and a little processing work might help.
    Simple fact is you need to work around the camera's known limitations, it can record 'reasonable' quality and the other features of the P2V+ make the package very hard to beat unless you spend considerable more.

    Thanks 4WD
    Yes you are true for limitation part. Fortunately I have never flew any quod flying or did videos before this.
    So trying to know limitations so as can plan the shots accordingly.

    If you can help me on processing part It would be great. SOme links also help of youtube tutorials :)

    Also I found while rotating the craft over shooting the video shows really nasty blur effect.
    What are the hints for it ?

    Most video cameras will do that, it gets worse as light levels drop.
    The solution is to pan more slowly and smoothly - takes practice
    You can reduce it on the computer afterwards with more advanced video editing software like Adobe Premiere.
    (rolling shutter repair filter)
