Maiden flight and video - glitches

Hello all,

This is a video from my maiden flight on my pre-loved Phantom 4. I know it’s low-res and clunky and could do with some filters for better contrast etc, but I’m not too unhappy for a first go.

There are a few glitches on the video, and it’s been suggested on a diggers forum try a new and faster rated SD card - on order.

Do you have any other suggestions of possible problems?

Thanks in advance.


The minimum spec for a card in the manual is Micro SD, Max capacity: 64GB. Class 10 or UHS-1 rating.

Best to stick with well known makes and beware if they seem to be a great bargain, fake SD cards are big business.

As for filters and the like, let’s get the glitches sorted first. Contrast, sharpness and colour enhancement are easily done in post processing with a half-decent editor - there are several free ones around.

The only other thing that springs to mind is the ribbon cable connecting the camera to the aircraft not being fully seated and momentarily losing contact. Be firm but gentle if you try to reseat it, they are a wee bit fragile.
