    Hi Guys, been flying my phantom for a few weeks now doing really well! The main problem i have is no experience with editing photos. The pictires are bent ( cant think of the proper term lol). Is there an easy way to edit and change this or a setting on the camera app? Or free downloadable program (im abot of a skin flint lol)

    Cheers for your help guys!

    Are you talking about the fish eye effect of the wide angle lense?

    No you need to post process the images and video. Search the forum. There are a couple of good options for fixing fisheye.

    GIMP is a free photo software some people use to take the fisheye out of a photo. There are youtube instructionals on how to use it to take out the bent look lol.
    Keepong the horizon in the middle of your frame creates less distortion but thats not always practical.

    Might affect the balance of the camera and therefore the gimbal action?

    While everyones on, to change the phantom to a longer range, do u just hav to turn the screw on the back of the controller or hook it up to your computer? Does this also alter the distance for the fpv or is it just control sticks.

    I've found the following steps in GIMP to work best for me:

    Filters > Distorts > Lens Distortion.

    Another window will pop up. For Main, enter -60, for Edge enter 15. Click on OK.

    Some are reporting that you have to do both. If you two beeps when switching on the TX then that bit's done. Just look in the assistant software and make sure it is set to FCC mode.

    And it's for control sticks only.
