Aloha,

     What is the top speed of the various Inspire drones where the horizon is vertically in the middle of a video (and Live Screen preview), but the propellers do not show in the video (or Live Screen display)?  Mahalo for the help!  I will understand if the various camera mounts are part of the equation.

Aloha and Drone On!

Hi Cetacean,

Not that I've had a lot of time doing top speed runs, but I've chased jet skis at 91-95Km/hr without props in the frame.
It is an issue if you fly with the gear down, or at an angle where prop shadow hits the camera, but otherwise no dramas.

Aloha Farnk,

     Yes, your points are well taken.  But, if you were at the same level as the jet ski, or say a glider or hang glider or paraglider and chasing them at 95 Km/hr, and of course your landing gear are up, would you likely see your props in the video and Live Feed?  (The important part of the question is for the horizon to be in the middle vertically.)  I am sure it is not something you would experience every day.  It is more of a question of extremes.  Mahalo for the help!

With the horizon at mid-frame, you will be fine at speed.
The only time I've ever seen props in frame was when flying with the gear down.

Aloha Farnk,

     Oh yeah, that makes sense since the pressure on the gear would be dragging the front down more than usual.  Mahalo for the help!

Wind speed can possibly effect whether propellers enter the shot, especially if you're fighting against some pretty strong wind.

You will see the props in your shot whenever you make abrupt movements. This is not something I concern myself with normally but it does happen.
