I got this in black for my P3P. Cannot use it. It's a little loose and needs to be secured somehow. Flying with a small bit of tape overwhelms the gimbal, weight-wise, and causes it to stop working repeatedly during the flight. He has released a v2 of it, but would be careful until test reports come out. I'm out $18.49. (Even though v2 dropped the price too!)

UPDATE: Messaged seller (James) on Shapeways. Got a quick reply. Not the only one to have trouble with v1. Going to test out v2, which looks better and lighter. Will let you know.

Something like this is really needed due to lens size and how much effect the sun has when flying in direction of it.

But this one pictured above looks like it may have some ill effects on aerodynamics with the camera and gimbal.

Good to see those of you posting openly on how product worked for you.

I've had no need for a petal lens yet, not seen any prop shadows or anything.

Have any of you seen problems with these lens shades when shooting stills? I have heard they can be problematic?
