    Ive made 3 short videos as a test, the
    Mavic props glare are very clear, even in hover with no forward movement. Seems to be the rflexion of the plastic cover.

    Then take it off!
    You're never going to get decent quality images with it on.

    What you see is what you should expect with the cover on. It is not a surprise. For best picture quality you should take the cover off. You would only fly with the cover on in situations where the protection is more important than the picture quality.

    Yup take it off while flying. I think it was probably added for gimbal protection while storing the Mavic.. you could use a polar Pro no filter if you like, i.e to protect the lens.

    I agree ... Its a shame though, it looks like it would somewhat protect the camera in case of a crash.

    The cover also slows down air flow to the fan that keeps the mavic cool ... so it looks like the recomendations are to fly with out the cover in place

    I agree with Anthony... After watching recent videos I think it would be risky to fly with the cover on for the reason stated - blocking cooling airflow. I am almost surprised now that DJI makes it with clear plastic. Drone Valley has a video that shows this clearly.
