    I'm sure it's a matter of preference, or what you're trying to film, but I was just wondering if there was a "preferred" angle of the camera when shooting. I don't have any FPV installed yet (coming soon hopefully), so for now I just take it up and shoot...

    Without having FPV I would say tilting it down 5° would be find in most cases. But there's more to FPV then just camera angle. I would suggest getting either longer landing gear or snap on extensions to protect your investment from damage. Replacing or repairing a gimbal or camera can be costly..

    I shoot just a touch downward, keeps the props out of view for 90% of flight, unless I'm at full throttle.
