So I've flown about 30 times from various locations, most of which are from my neighborhood sidewalk. There is a vacant field nearby, and I have seen a little dust on takeoff. Should a little dust be expected to enter the camera lens on the P3?

Anyone else getting dust on the inside of their lens? Any way to clean it?

Remove the cap that holds the UV filter. Remove dust. Reinstall cap.
PS. Use a rubber band to add grip..

IdahoCopterHawk, I use the Nikon Lens Pen to clean my camera lens.

As spankybear pointed out, there is a lens filter screwed onto the actual lens. If the dust is not on the lens filter itself, then unscrew it and clean the lens. When removing the lens filter, grip it as lightly as possible. It should not be installed very tightly -- but, it will feel like it is if you attempt to apply a lot of force when twisting it off.

Excellent feedback folks, I had no idea there was a filter, so I'll take a look and get back. Thank you!
