    Hi guys, semi new pilot of a Phamtom 3 4k. I'm loving it so far! :) Still figuring out things as I go. ( mastered way points today). My question is I have horizontal that come and go in my videos. From what I gather its caused by " prop shadows " from the light.

    Not sure if this is true or not but a article I read claims that adding a sun shade causes " wear and tear " on the gimbal system.o_O Not sure if thats accurate or not.

    I found this kit on Amazon? Thoughts?

    Anything added to the Phantom could cause unusual wear and tear. I've never heard of any issues caused by using a lens hood though.
