I was trying to find out what the best setting were to use a Go-Pro with a Phantom 2 quad rotor and I came across some great information at the following link –
Its also worth watching this video which shows you the benefits of each mode when filming with a Phantom 2.
I ended up going with 1440 mode as you can crop the top of the footage off hiding the front rotors which sometimes get in frame when flying forward quickly.
Great cheat sheet to the different GoPro resolutions and what they are best suited for.
My first test shoot in 1440 mode with the top section cropped off in Final Cut
