    Hi everybody,
    I have my Phantom II Vision + for some 2 months. It flies nicely but a little problem arised from the very beginning - the lovely FISHEYE effect. I must admit I really dislike that effect.
    Anybody heard of the lens converter I could use? Change the view-angle from 140 deg to some 90-110 deg would do good for me.
    I have seen similar converters for Gopro cameras but cannot find any for Vision +.
    Any clews on that would be highly appreciated.

    You can use the exact same lens that you use for the go pro as it is the same thread. The vision 2 Plus camera is a bit tricky to take apart but have a look at youtube - there is a video explaining how to delicately take the camera apart - not for the faint hearted due to the delicate cable.

    Thanks a lot for that prompt, I'll look on Tube :). Did not realize it is the same thread.

    Thank you again. I have already seen that service but I think sending the whole stuff from Poland to USA and back just to replace a lens for $100 does not make sense.
    Anyway, yesterday I tried to narrow the FOV internally (in camera settings) and I find it acceptable for now.
