Hey guys I've been messing with my new MPP for a couple of days now. This is my first DJI product, I've been flying 3D RC planes for years and have only flown a couple little horizon hobby drones and wanted to get into aerial video of action and nature. I have a couple of questions. 1st, what should I use to actually see what the camera is pointed at? My iphone 7s plus sucks, I can't see crap unless I'm in the shade. I've been wanting to purchase a ipad pro 10.5 for other needs as well, but I don't know if that will be any better in the sun.
I was thinking of maybe trying the dji goggles, worth a try?
secondly, I haven't changed any camera settings, the video looked too noisy and lacking detail, is there a recommended video setting for clear skies? filters I should look into investing?

Welcome to MavicPilots from Dayton Ohio! I use the CrystalSky as a monitor, it is great in direct sunlight. As far as your video issues go are you looking at the video directly on the MicroSD card or the cached video on your phone? The cached video is only a 720p preview. Fly safe and have fun!
