    I was taking some long exposure shots at night and noticed that after yawing the phantom the camera will continue to pan, slowing gradually before coming to a stop some 20 seconds later. This is there to make sure you have no abrupt pans when taking video I guess, but it's annoying when taking stills as it blurs the image. Does anyone know if it's possible to stop it doing this? i.e just point directly forward and no slow pans? Just moving the phantom around by hand will show you the effect. i.e it's not related to the controller.

    thanks

    You can switch it off in the more recent android apps, but not sure the apple version has the option yet..
    Most users will want it on.

    That option only seems to only affect pre-panning the camera with the controller, doesn't seem to affect to post yaw pan. I use Android, although it's possible this is a recent problem that is related as I hadn't noticed it before.

    You're probably right, I tried it and it did seem more directly linked though.
