Being new to the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 but not new to DJI (Mavic Pro, Mavic 2 Pro) I've noticed on several occassions I see my props in my video.

Is there an optimal gimbal pitch to avoid this ? Or is it a combination of gimbal pitch and speed ?

Thank you !

Your drone moves forward by tilting.
More tilt = more speed.
If it's fighting a headwind, it would have to tilt just to hold position.
Whether you see the props depends on how much the drone is tilting so there's no single answer to your question.

I had that problem. The solution was, besides going slower, is to uncheck the setting that allows the gimbal to extend 30 degrees up from horizontal. Then the max 'up' position is looking straight out, not upward. And, using tripod mode will prevent it, thoughhe speed is pretty slow at max forward.

Thank you for the solution. I’m looking forward to using it !
