lenses and filters

Does anyone use any special filters on their camers while using Karma?  I have done some sunrise flights and the glare on the lens takes away from the shot. I was wondering if anyone else had same problem and knew of a fix for it.

I've used a sun hood https://www.amazon.com/Black-Camera-Shade-Cover-Accessory/dp/B01M5KTMY4 and filters. Both work to varying effects but the extra weight causes a slight shake in the stabilizer when performing certain maneuvers.

The simplest way to reduce sun flare is to either lower the EV, spot meter (by pressing and holding on the controller screen), or just angle the direction of the camera slightly.
