    Attitude gains look quite sporting. :) It all depends on your flying style and how you want the aircraft to react. For aerial video then you might want to bring the attitude gains down for a more gentle response to your inputs - or you may be quite happy with how it is set up now.

    If you are happy with how it responds to your right stick inputs then I wouldn't change the attitude gains. If you are happy with how the aircraft reacts in GPS hold (i.e. the hover is stable, no oscillations or twitching, etc) then again there's probably no need to change them. If you do, then change one at a time and by 10% at a time, test fly, repeat.

    I'm not sure this is possible with the gains settings but I am wanting to make my control stick inputs a little less sensitive so that I can turn more gently. I'm fine with right-left up and down, but as I rotate the P2 for smooth video, I find that a very slight movement on the stick makes a more pronounce turn than I care for. It's possible to be gentle on the stick, but it's also so easy for your fingers to overshoot and I'd like to be able to lessen the sensitivity of any one throw. Possible?


    Thanks

    Zryall its the atti gains you need to lower mine are set high for quick turns. just move them down maybe 10% then test and just keep moving them down until you get the setting your happy with. I think Simon did a youtube vid about it

    +1 on lowering atti gains for smoother stick response. Simple explanation on gains - Basic Gain #s = how craft reacts to conditions. Atti Gains = how craft reacts to stick input.
