    Hey guys, check out my play around with the upgradeboard/gimbal.
    Personally I dont really like the Phantom legs comming into shot to freqently.

    Birdseye shots are nice though, let me know what ya think or ways I can improve my experience.
    Cheers

    I think the prop guards on the front should go for a start as they just put more crap then needed in the fov. I assume you aren't flying FPV and so having prop guards only on the rear would help with seeing orientation as it will distinguish front and back pretty well.

    Only other things you can do is change the GoPro FOV to medium or narrow modes and this should reduce landing gear and arms from getting in the shot. You could also use 2.7k30 and then crop in post to get rid of any arms and legs along with pitching the camera down slightly from instead of level with the horizon. Most of the things you want to see are on the ground anyway and if you tilt down slightly it will reduce the props and arms getting into frame when moving forward.
