Thought I'd share the video of my latest flight which took place on the island of Evia in Greece, under a recent heatwave of 39°C heat (in the shade).Was worried that the battery would give up in mid-air due to overheating but all went well without a hitch.

The battery would not charge afterwards for a good 40 minutes until it cooled down (it was boiling hot when I took it out).

The camera had the SnakeRiver Prototyping UV Filter over its lens barrel.

Nice.  However, I have a question about the filter/and what drone are you flying?  I don't see anything that would fit a P3 on the SR site.

Great video. One question. Is there any benefit to using a second UV filter when the camera on the P3 adv and pro already has one fitted as standard?

Why you put another UV filter on? UV Filter do very very little to the picture

A second UV filter has minimal effect on the image, however it protects the filter that's built into the lens barrel from scratches, especially during a bumpy landing.
It is far cheaper and easier to replace than DJI's own and in the event of scratching during a trip somewhere, I can just remove it and resume flying with DJI's own, while I order a new one.

I am using a modified case with the UV filter for the P2V+3.0 on the Phantom 3 Pro barrel.

Fits snugly and gets the job done.
