    I have an FC40 and am about to get set up with FPV - a Boscam TS321 setup, an SJ4000 and a cheap screen.

    My question is about how the quad handles. When I watch most FPV video the copter seems to bank and turn at the same time. Almost like a boat - banking to one side and turning. But that isn't a move that comes naturally when using my FC40 - I would need to bank to have three separate stick inputs - rigtht lever forward and to the side while also turning using the left lever.

    I tried to use manual mode to but it's so hard to control - crashed again and broke my extended legs :-( Am wondering will it become natural when I'm flying FPV and this question will be irrelevant.

    I know it sounds a bit involved, a strange question - but what am I missing here ?

    Cheers - Damian.

    I started flying my P2 without a gimbal until I had enough flying confidence to add the gimbal, Hero4 camera, FPV transmitter, iOSD. The P2 felt more sluggish (naturally with the added weight) but was very controllable. Then I added my GPS tracker to a leg and I didn't notice any flying difference.

    With more practice, I was able to turn in circles while keeping the camera pointed in a particular direction which does require more complex stick inputs than flying a box or away/towards you. This has reminded me of learning to fly fixed wing RC - it took hours and hours of practice before "muscle memory" kicked in - at some point in training all you have to do is to think about what direction you wanted to fly and the fingers "automatically" moved the sticks in the appropriate direction.
