GoPro 3 Sun Shield

Attaches to the naked GoPro 3. Weighs only 2.5g.


Reduce prop shadow and glare

Here's an interesting little accessory we discovered: to reduce that annoying propeller shadow on multirotors and tractor-driven fixed wing aircraft, try a GoPro sun shield. Designed for the naked GoPro 3 (won't work with the case on), this little sun shield weighs 2.5g and works in all camera resolutions and FOV settings in the GoPro. Considering there's no info on the material it's made of, we're going to guess it's 3d printed plastic.

Seems like a good idea, but yes, I agree you need a video. You've posted twice about this product and both time people have asked for a video.
