I was flying my MP into a 20km/h headwind and took some pictures. I then did the same across the wind, and again downwind. All of the shots into the wind were out of focus while all the others were in focus. I did not do the tap focus thing as I rarely find it necessary when capturing distant scenery. Perhaps it would be wise to do it when flying into the wind.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so what did you do about it?

The following 3 shots show the problem. The 1st is into the wind, the 2nd across it and the last is downwind.

Huh, wonder if there's just too much buffeting of the camera from the headwind for the gimbal to compensate?

That is what I thought. However I took a picture with my Spark into the same wind and it was fine. Maybe the MP gimbal is more sensitive.
