    I believe it's the shadows that are cast onto the lens as the propellers pass between the lens and the sun.
    Try an ND filter and see if that helps. They also make some lens hoods that can block those shadows being cast.

    Agree, prop shadow. Reposition and turn quad to avoid that position in relation to the sun.
    Fly backward rather than forward to keep quad pitched props up out of frame. Difficult depending on wind direction.

    I'm unfamiliar with what those cars are doing. What is that called?

    Just angle the camera down a little and you'll get rid of the sun shadows

    Yep, definitely jello/rolling shutter. The best solution is to add an ND Filter.

    The SRP range of BlurFix Air Filters have been specifically designed for the GoPro / Zenmuse Gimbal and only weight around 7.6g

    Depending on the brightness, I'd look at either an ND4 or ND8

    Hate to be a naysayer but that is not jello, it's the sun reflecting on the props !
