    Lens reflection

    Hi all,
    Being a very recent drone user, a Mavic Pro.
    I am getting a light reflection in my lens, I have thoroughly cleaned both the lens and the cover,
    tried with the cover off and still the same.
    Any suggestions would be welcome.
    Cheers
    Bushy

    Is this similar to what you're getting?

    Thanks closei,
    yep, you got it in one mate, absolute PITA big time, only bought it in June.
    It looks like I may have a long wait for a warranty replacement :-(
    Did your's do this as well ? I don't see why I should have to purchase a gopro to fix their faults.
    Stay stable

    No mines a phantom but there a few software bugs with that as well.

    Hi all,
    Just a quick note, while I was down Tenterfield recently, I spoke with an avid drone user, he put me onto a set of ND filters - problem cured.
    Works wonders .

    It is the plastic cover it should be removed before flight 8 very very rarely use a t if very dusty but t you shouldn’t it catches sunlight and you get a flare or reflection there is also some discussion that it’s not good for the electronics because t blocks airflow into the big air intake behind the camera and Gimble.
